Thom Creed is used to being on his own. Even though he's a basketball star, his high school classmates keep their distance. They have picked up on something different about Thom. Plus, he can't escape his father's history. Hal Creed was one of the greatest and most beloved superheroes of his time until a catastrophic event left him disfigured and an outcast. The last thing in the world Thom wants is to add to his father's pain, so he keeps secrets. Like that he has special powers. And he's been asked to join the League -- the very organization of superheroes that disowned Hal. But joining the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes:* Scarlett, who can control fire but not her anger, * Typhoid Larry, who can make anyone sick with his touch, * Ruth, a wise old woman who can see the future. Together these unlikely heroes become friends and begin to uncover a plot to kill the superheroes. This groundbreaking and widely acclaimed novel tells an unforgettable story about love, loss, and redemption. Hide synopsis

Entertaining?Heart-touching?Amusing... With his watered-down, lukewarm super heroes, like Warrior Woman (Wonder Woman), Uberman (Superman), and Silver Bullet (Flash), they are surprisingly human and very believable. This is a story of teen Thom Creed?s coming of age, and his discovery of his powers, hidden sexuality, and the mysteries of his life surrounded by heroes. I look forward to the next book Perry Moore writes. I really enjoyed ?Hero?.
