Hero by Perry Moore

Thom Creed has just a little more than your average teen angst. After all, life has got to be tough when you’re trying to hide your super power from your dad — who is a former/excommunicated superhero — who hates superheroes with powers. Then, of course, there is the fact that Thom is gay and his dad is extremely homophobic.  Although the description thus far may make it seem like this would be a super-heavy or depressing read, it’s actually quite hilarious.  One of the funniest passages — the one that had me laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe — actually has a couple of “f-bombs” in it, so I guess I can’t post it here…  But, take my word for it.  It’s hilarious!  Plenty of action, lots of mystery, and (of course) a whole lot of teen angst.  If I could have read this any faster, it would have been worth the risk of possibly burning through the pages with my super-laser-vision!

Happy Reading!

  1. Dear Chrissie,

    Thank you so much for reviewing my book HERO. I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m available for you to write to me (e-mail below), and I always make myself available to student reading groups, teachers, and GSA’s.

    Thanks again for turning people on to a novel that will hopefully teach you how to tap into your inner-HERO!

    All my best,
    Perry Moore

  2. By the way, Chrissie, I also wanted to thank you for being a real-life hero. Growing up as a gay athlete, it was the library and the librarians that provided me with the refuge that allowed me to dream of a world where I wouldn’t have to kill myself!

    Thanks for all you, and your fellow librarians, do!

  3. Dear Chrissie,
    Hope you had some peaceful holidays. For some reason, I bet you unwrap a lot of books as presents. I wanted to let you know I just finished the rough draft of my next book. This series is for a touch of the younger reader, but I’m about to dive into a sequel to HERO.

    And I don’t know if you do this kind of thing, but I’d love to be interviewed by a librarian extraodonaire before the brouhaha of the book launch takes over.

    Thanks for doing the work of angels.

    Best wishes,
    Perry Moore,
    author of HERO
