Publisher's Summary

Superheroes soar in this promising debut - and they’re kids!

Twelve-year-old Daniel, the new kid in town, soon learns the truth about his nice - but odd - new friends: one can fly, another can turn invisible, yet another controls electricity. Incredible. The superkids use their powers to secretly do good in the town, but they’re haunted by the fact that the moment they turn thirteen, their abilities will disappear - along with any memory that they ever had them. Is a memory-stealing supervillain sapping their powers?

The answers lie in a long-ago meteor strike, a World War II–era comic book (Fantastic Futures, starring the first superhero, Johnny Noble), the green-flamed Witch Fire, a hidden Shroud cave, and - possibly, unbelievably - “powerless” regular-kid Daniel himself.

Superhero kids meet comic book mystery in this action-filled debut about the true meaning of a hero.

Not the usual SciFi theme

While this would be categorized as a juvenile, Robert Heinlein wrote some wonderful juveniles. This is NOT in that category, but it does have an interesting idea (abnormal powers - different in each child - in a few young people who then lose them) and runs with it.
