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!
