    Almost every review I ve read for this book applauds the subject matter a gay teen superhero but laments the sloppy writing I m going to add my voice to this choir The writing reminded me of problems I ve had with some other YA novels Everything is just a little too melodramatic, a little too overwrit...

    In Hero, author Perry Moore demonstrates a superpower of his own he can turn prose into lead.Since Moore s intentions are admirable, it s tempting to gloss over the book s poor execution by praising it using plenty of qualifiers Hero is the best YA novel featuring a gay teen superhero I ve read all month Unfortunately, I just can t bring myself to use the words Hero and best in the same sentence Well, in a pinch I could probably force myself to say, I read Hero while staying at a Be In Hero, author Perry Moore demonstrates a superpow...

    Go fuck yourself, book EDIT I wrote that when I just finished the book and I was ranting But it s not fair because this was a good, entertaining book and, most important, it s a book about a gay teenager that, beware does not only revolves around his sexuality He has other problems, he has a life, he has superpowers it just happens that he is gay too That s the LGBT literature I want to seeof.I love the main character, and his father 3 The plot wasn t a masterpiece Go fuck yourself, book EDIT I wrote that when I just finished the book an...

    I read this a few years ago so forgive me if I don t remember all of it Here are my thoughts on what I recall I think I wanted to like this bookthan I actually did What probably turned me off most about it was that it was too campy I prefer my superheroes to be darker,serious,grounded in reality Not goofy and punny And that s what a lot of this book was The only deeper parts were the waaaaaay overused trope of using the alternate identities of a superhero as a metaphor fo I read this a few years ago so forgive me if I don t remember all of it Here are my thoughts on what I recall I think I wanted to like this bookthan I actually did What probably turned me off most about it was that it was too campy I prefer my superheroes to be darker,serious,grounded in reality Not goofy and punny And that s what a lot of this book was The only deeper parts were ...

    Ok, here s why this book is good There s some good layering going on here The foundation is this high school kid, Thom, coming to terms with his sexuality So that s interesting on it s own, but then Moore adds a world of superheroes Superheroes in this world don t always have special powers and being a superhero is a career complete with a salary Then there s Thom s home life with his single dad Thom s parents are former superheros and his mom abandoned them a few years back I really li Ok...
