"It is about a boy who moves to this town to help his ill grandma. He then finds out the that there are kids who have super powers."
  dneirick | Jun 13, 2019 |
Fun YA about a boy who moves to a town filled with youthful superheroes and the mystery surrounding them. It's not a work of unequaled genius, but that's all right, it's still a fun read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375855955, Hardcover)

Superheroes soar in this promising debut—and they’re kids!

Twelve-year-old Daniel, the new kid in town, soon learns the truth about his nice—but odd—new friends: one can fly, another can turn invisible, yet another controls electricity. Incredible. The superkids use their powers to secretly do good in the town, but they’re haunted by the fact that the moment they turn thirteen, their abilities will disappear—along with any memory that they ever had them. Is a memory-stealing supervillain sapping their powers?

The answers lie in a long-ago meteor strike, a World War II–era comic book (Fantastic Futures, starring the first superhero, Johnny Noble), the green-flamed Witch Fire, a hidden Shroud cave, and—possibly, unbelievably—“powerless” regular-kid Daniel himself.

Superhero kids meet comic book mystery in this action-filled debut about the true meaning of a hero.
