            The last thing in the world Thom Creed wants is to add to his father’s pain, so he keeps secrets.  Like that he has special powers.  And that he’s been asked to join the League – the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad.  But the most painful secret of all is one Thom can barely face himself: he’s gay.              But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom.  There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, who can control fire but not her anger; Typhoid Larry, who can make anyone sick with his touch; and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future.  Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide; but they will have to learn to trust one another when they uncover a deadly conspiracy within the League.            To survive, Thom will face challenges he never imagined.  To find happiness, he’ll have to come to terms with his father’s past and discover the kind of hero he really wants to be.

5.0 Book Review - Hero, by Perry Moore
This book was a ride and a half! And then another ride! I haven’t had this much fun in a long time, and still, there were moments of near despair here. YA at its very best. What a fantastic book. If I ever get any superpowers, I think the power to heal others would be right up my alley. Non-conf...

Plus, his father, Hal Creed, was one of the greatest and most beloved superheroes of his time until a catastrophic event left him disfigured an...

The main character, Thom, is a high school student struggling with the fact he is gay and developing superpowers. The fact he is developing powers is exciting to him, particularly when...
