"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.

A woman was throwing starfish back into the ocean, ones that had washed ashore, onlookers thought she was crazy. They knew she wouldn't be able to save all the starfish so they wondered why she even bothered to try, she said, "It will make a huge difference...for this one."
