Synopsis: Hi, I’m Cole Champion, and oh-so-very lucky (as my mom’s constantly reminding me) to attend the prestigious Honor, Endurance, Resolve, Optimism Junior High. My mom’s the principal of HERO Junior High, which is why I’m stuck going there—and sticking out like a sore thumb. How am I supposed to keep up when my classmates can lift cars, become invisible, or break the sound barrier?
At least I can excel in science class, where my love of STEM—that’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math—comes in handy. But science class takes a turn for the worse when the antics of my super-strong classmate put the school in danger. And it seems none of the other students’ powers can help. That’s where I come in!

Thanks so much to Jolly Fish Press and Netgalley for the earc to read and review.
Review: This book reminded me so much of Sky High the Disney movie with all the kids having super powers expect the lead and he doesn’t feel like he fits in at the supers school, he has a crush on the nature flower growing super, views the strong kid as a bully. It was very similar or at least it felt it to me.
I loved that this had a huge science lesson within the whole book, so much that kids get to learn and understand, it had fun with all the supers and everything that they can do, it was great that Cole offered a different type of super power to the mix.
I think this would be a good book for any kid that is starting to show signs of enjoying science and STEAM as it will help them, plus it has superhero students and of friendship slowing forming in unexpected ways.
