Mik Murdoch, Boy Superhero
Mik would love to be a superhero. He is a kind boy and likes to help people. Trouble is...he's not sure exactly how to go about it. He tries to create a costume like Ironman but it is too heavy - although he does get so use out of the defenses he creates. What Mik discovers is that he can be pretty super without special powers. He helps a homeless family, finds the people who kidnapped his dog, stopped some candy snatchers on Halloween.
What I liked - Mik was very nice and helpful and had a good relationship with his family and his dog.
What I didn't like - It didn't seem to flow well, lots of time passes and it went from episode to episode. There was also a "boss" that wasn't resolved.
My biggest gripe was that I got this from NetGalley showing as a 2016 release but.... It was actually first written in 2012 and has a sequel (assuming the "boss" is in that book). While overall I enjoyed the book, it ended up being a waste of reading time for me since my committee does not consider rerelease books.
