Booklist Reviews 2020 March #2

Openly queer 16-year-old Nick Bell has a humongous crush on Shadow Star, Nova City's very own Extraordinary (superhero). But every hero has to have a nemesis, and Shadow Star's is Pyro Storm. Both are fixtures in Nick's perfervid fan fiction. Sadly, in real life, he has never met the two Extraordinaries—until he does, and things change dramatically. In the meantime, he hangs with his friends Seth, Gibby, and Jazz, all of whom identify as queer. Nick dreams of becoming an Extraordinary himself so that he can pair up with Shadow Star. But wait! There's more. Though very close, Nick's relationship with his father is tested by his ADHD. And speaking of relationships, could Nick and Seth's friendship be turning into something more? Klune's romp is irresistibly readable, although there are a few flaws: Nick sometimes seems more like 8 than 16 and is sometimes not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he's always lovable, as are his friends. A good thing, too, because, there's going to be a sequel. Readers will be delighted! Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

In Nova City, Nick Bell is an apparently ordinary high school student whose megacrush on local superhero Shadow Star leads him into wild stunts in a quest for his own superpowers. Though at first he only wants the stunts to bring him to Shadow Star's attention, his motivations shift when a battle between Shadow Star and his nemesis, Pyro Storm, injures Nick's police officer father, who is all he has left after the death of his mother two years earlier. Nick's ADHD and almost comical optimism combine to make a charming and entertaining hero, and his equally amusing circle of inclusive friends is supportive of his emotional excesses. Though his strict but supportive father does his best to keep Nick out of trouble, the teen finds a way to put himself in the path of danger as his hero and Pyro Storm's feud comes to a head. There's plenty in this lighthearted, superhero-interested teen dramedy for kids who feel like they're sometimes on the outside, including the positive representation of a teen with ADHD. Ages 13–up. Agent: Deidre Knight, the Knight Agency. (May)
