The Book I read was named hero by Mike Lupica and it the setting of the book is right in New York City, but Zach is constently walking around finding new adventures.
In the book Zach's Dad was a superhero, until he died in a mysterious plane crash. Zach goes on an adventure and finds a man that has powers to. After a little while Zach also finds out that he has incredible strength and he is now very fast, but Zach's uncle does not trust this man and Zach does not know who to trust.
Zach also has has his best friend Kate whos is by his his side no matter what. She knows everything about him because she can read him very well.
The main Character in the book is Zach Harriman and he has a very intesting life. He has trouble with some kids in school and finds out he has super powers after that and becomes a hero. Zach is a very brave, courages, and dedicated
The conflict Zach had to solve was his Dads mysterious death because when he went to the crash site nothing was there and there were no body's found so when he finds out his plane crash was no acciedent he starts trying to avenge his father.
I think this was a good book because there were lots of surprises and exciting things that kept me reading
I recommend my book for kids that are about 12-13 because it was good, but meant for a little younger audience
