Public School SuperheroPaperback - 2016
"A smart and kind story topped with just the right amount of social justice," according to Kirkus, James Patterson's newest hit illustrated novel is a genuinely funny, poignant look at middle school in a challenging inner-city setting, now available in paperback.
Kenny Wright is a kid with a secret identity. In his mind, he's Stainlezz Steel, super-powered defender of the weak. In reality, he's a chess club devotee known as a "Grandma's Boy," a label that makes him an easy target for bullies. Kenny wants to bring a little more Steel to the real world, but the question is: can he recognize the real strength and goodness inside himself? Or will peer pressure force him to make the worst choice of his life?
Interspersed with fantastic illustrations and comic-book panels, this book aims to both entertain and to provoke dialogue about identity, belonging, and doing the right thing.
