By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Almost Super - Marion Jensen

This is kind of a Savvy-like idea: kids in the Bailey family who are 12 or older get super powers at 4:23 on February 29th. They use their powers to fight the villainous Johnsons. But Rafter and his brother get the weakest superpowers ever. This was pretty solidly middle-of-the-road for me: an okay read, but not one I got excited about. Kids who are looking for fairly light superhero books, however, will probably love this! I’ve seen it as a readalike for fans of The Incredibles, and that’s just about right.
