Gr 5-7-Daniel Corrigan, introduced in Powerless (Knopf, 2009), continues in his struggle to be an ordinary 13-year-old kid surrounded by superpowered friends. Months after defeating their evil adversary Herman Plunkett, aka the Shroud, Daniel and company are surprised to learn that the elderly Plunkett had relatives who have decided to move to town. Most notable is teenaged Theo, who suspects that there is a mystery to be solved in the town of Noble's Green, and his determined questions threaten to expose the supertweens. Meanwhile, a new group of sinister beings dubbed Shades is attacking the Supers, and it is up to Daniel to once again save the day. But as he has begun exhibiting the ability to temporarily steal his friends' powers, does he really need to protect them from himself? Familiarity with the first title is a must to follow the events in Super and to understand why the group of friends is willing to put their faith in Daniel. Readers will likely forgive any hiccups in the story's logic as the fast-paced action and engaging characters drive the narration to a conclusion that certainly seems to indicate that there will be more to come.-Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, ILα(c) Copyright 2011.
