Avery is just your average boy. No super strength or ability to fly, no sir. Nope, he’s not a misfit or freak or anything. Just your average, dull boy.
Except, of course, he’s not. And it’s gotten beyond his ability to control or hide, so people (like, his parents) are starting to notice and wonder. So they pack Avery off to a school for troubled and/or difficult youth, and things just go from bad to worse. This weird girl is stalking him, insisting she knows who and what he is, the rest of the students are all psychopaths, and the teachers don’t care.
But once Avery finally gives in to Darla’s pleading and agrees to meet with her other friends, things get better. He’s not the only freak out there after all! They even manage to do some good with their powers. Except it’s not all sunshine and lollipops–Cherchette, a mysterious woman who seems to have powers of her own is trying to lure Avery and some of his new friends to join her mysterious and possibly sinister team.
Yes, it’s a teen super hero novel. And while it’s not terribly original (but then most super hero novels aren’t) it is a fun read, and has the potential to become a solid series.
