The Hero Stone : What If You Could Become Your Favourite Superhero?
A modern fantasy adventure of superpowers and terror, starring three brave teens, one of whom lives with an intellectual disability, confronting one depraved villain. Does good always prevail over evil? Meet Michael Johnson, a seventeen-year-old with the mind of an eight-year-old. An avid comic book reader, Michael finds an uncanny stone that lets his superhero fantasies become real. It also makes him a target, sending him on a cross-Canada trek, just one step ahead of a twisted, merciless predator. Michael's two teenage friends, Billy and Melanie, get swept up in his grim adventure, at great personal cost. Melanie, a strong self-reliant girl, must cope with a devastating loss. With great power, comes great problems. (This is a revised second edition of the novel, now suitable for ages 13-up.)
