Description

With the grasshoppers chirruping in his ear and the sun drying the sweat on his face he’d lie there and wait. Wait for the superheroes to appear. He knew them all. He loved them all . . . They didn’t have to worry about homework or mowing the lawns. And as for bullies… Since when did a superhero have to worry about bullies?

Aaron Bindon doesn’t really fit in. He spends most of his time in that limbo land occupied by average, unpopular kids. He dreams of being as powerful as one of the superheroes that soar through the skies above his town fighting evil. But Aaron’s life starts to get more interesting when the government declares that, for reasons of national security, all the superheroes in the community need to come out from behind their masks. Wouldn’t it be great if the Crimson Avenger or Captain Solar turned out to be someone Aaron knew?
