Sticking with the hero theme, this week’s book is also about a teen who discovers he has superpowers. Mike Lupica, known for his fast-paced sports stories, steps outside that genre to deliver an equally exciting story packed with action and self-discovery. The song, Hero, is an oldie by Mariah Carey that captures the exhilaration of finding internal strength.
We’re not quite finished with our heroes yet! Stay tuned to Jukebooks for another hero next week.
