Publisher's Summary

When Doctor Donovan spies 13-year-old Bobby fighting to keep a bully away from a younger child, Bobby is invited to attend Donovan's Academy. The classes are intense, and it's only with the help of Ivana, the brilliant (and just as arrogant) girl who's been assigned to show him around, that he makes it through his first day.

But Donovan's Academy holds a secret. Doctor Donovan (a former teen sidekick) is training the next generation of superheroes. When Bobby learns the real purpose of Donovan's Academy, he's thrilled but unsure he has a place there without powers of his own. Plus, how does he keep his pacifist mother from finding out about the martial arts classes (not to mention the girl with laser eyes)?

Soon, though, it's time for him to find out if he's a hero. Ivana's supervillain father has come to claim her, and only Bobby can save her.

Well rounded, mature, younger characters!!

Would you listen to The School Secret again? Why?

A wonderful book for adults to read with their children. Will definitely read/listen again.

Which character – as performed by Garrett L. Whitehead – was your favorite?

My favorite was his portrayal of Donovan.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The moments with the main character thinking back on life with his father were very touching.

Any additional comments?

The characters written by Daniel were intriguing. There were times I forgot they were children until those very "middle school" moments and relationships happened. It was a joy to read.

Great age appropriate super hero story!

Way to go Dan! A very nice intro to a middle school age appropriate super hero world. A few good characters with background building, hopefully leaving the young readers wanting more.
