+ I enjoyed the story.
+ Loved that Leon literally had the power of common sense
+ For MHA fans, Leon is basically Deku. A sweet child who knows everything about the heroes. c:
+ The mother-son relationship! there’s a little depth with Leon feeling lied to about his mom’s super identity, and she explains with foreshadowing why heroes keep that secret. I wasn’t expecting this, but it was nice.

- Clementine was too much. I get she was acting out, but she had like full-blown hatred that didn’t make sense. she only got attention for acting poorly… okay… her parents were celebrity superheroes who didn’t have time for her, but why did she hate Leon so much??? Hopefully, the next book covers their fallout.

- The artwork could feel unfinished at times. As an artist myself, I’m in no ways discounting the gruesomely tedious hard work it is to create anything especially a graphic novel. But too many times, Chalmers was left completely unshaded next to shaded characters. And Clementine was draw off model at times.

I love stories that center around superheroes and/or superpowers. I would read the sequel.

I wanted to like this more than I did -- I just didn't care for the art, wasn't in the mood for superheroes, and felt like it needed a more interesting story. Clearly, I'm not the intended audience and I think they'd like it a lot.

This was really amazing, eye opening, and scary. Although it is clearly meant to educate, the story avoids being preachy, and I was completely drawn in. Is it appropriate for middle schoolers? I think it would be a great book to read and discuss, because there is a lot to process. Ultimately I think everyone should read this at some point - maybe in eighth grade, maybe later, depending on the student and whether they have a chance to talk about it with an adult. Some people might be put off by the trash talking language, but the real story being told is too important to focus on the way people talk when they're trying to be tough. It's an inspiring story that I will definitely be curious to learn more about.… (més)
