A signed POWERLESS paperback by Matthew Cody

Donated by: Matthew Cody

Reluctant boy readers and superhero fans will devour this delicious read with a side of brains. I should know--I did, and promptly sent author Matt Cody an email full of gush. This is a great adventure story and a superhero tale all in one. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

So...without further ado, here's some more info! There's also an audio version up for grabs if you haven't already seen it.

Prize details:
The winner will receive a signed paperback of POWERLESS by Matthew Cody.

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.
