Why I'm excited about it
I am craving a good MG novel right about now. I spotted this on Edelweiss and immediately loved the look of it. It sounds a little like Kick Ass with a bit of Misfits thrown in, and a little like a superhero comic in reverse...and has the classic underdog that we can all root for! Also, the little wee man on the cover is an adorable video game character that I want to play with.
What it's about...
Daniel Corrigan is as regular as can be, especially when compared to the Supers: kids in his new hometown with actual powers like flight and super strength. But Daniel's not powerless. Only he was able to stop the Shroud, a supervillian bent on stealing his newfound friends' powers. And thanks to him, his friends got to keep those powers.
Now Daniel himself is starting to display powers, while at the same time, his friends are losing theirs. His friend Eric thinks Daniel is just becoming a Super himself, a late-blooming one. But Daniel worries there may be something more sinister at work, since his power-stealing ability is uncomfortably like the Shroud's. Of course, the Shroud is gone now . . . or is he? And could Daniel himself be his new vessel?
