Description

Savvy meets The Incredibles in this engaging, laugh-out-loud sequel to the critically acclaimed Almost Super. Filled with heart and humor, Searching for Super is a family adventure of heroic proportions.

The superheroes of Split Rock are hunkering down, which is really just a fancy way of saying they're hiding. Ever since those supervillainous Joneses took away their real powers, the Baileys and the Johnsons have been living in fear. But Rafter has had a taste of what saving the day feels like, and now he's desperate to do something important.

So when he gets an opportunity to fight with a real superpower-as long as he promises not to tell his parents-he is going to take it, no questions asked. With the help of his brother Benny, his cousin Thimon, and his best friend, Juanita, Rafter Bailey is searching for super.
