Description

Welcome to Superhero School! Join Oliver, Jess, and all their friends on a mission to destroy the power-hungry, evil villains of Vork. From subterranean sewers to lush jungle, from dinosaurs to dragons, our heroes will be pushed to their limits in ways they'd never imagined. Will their collective Powers--Flight, Morphing, Invisibility, Mind Reading, and more--be enough for them to overcome the malevolence of Vork? Or will they stumble over their own doubts and painful histories? This action-packed journey of friendship, hardship, and humor will take our heroes to thrilling new heights and a deeper understanding of their own place in the world. But will that be enough--or will Vork always be one step ahead?

Review quote

Gracie Dix is ready to join the ranks of America's next wave of great fantasy/adventure writers. Welcome to Superhero School is a page-turner where Oliver, Jessica, classmates and teachers take on supervillains and each other in wave after wave of densely-layered exploits. The book will leave you breathless and waiting for the sequel. Rick Vanzura, Chief Strategy and Business Develop Officer, GameStop; Former Executive VP and Chief Strategy Officer, Borders.



This well written novel for teens will keep your pages turning for sure! Welcome to Superhero School grabs you from the first page, takes you on a fantastical adventure with a diverse cast of characters, and leaves you wanting more. Gracie Dix is a gifted young author, who knows how teens speak and think. What I admire most about this book is that the characters must learn to accept themselves, work with others, and persevere in order to meet the many challenges they face. Filled with peril and unexpected twists, this novel had me imagining what the movie would look like. If you enjoy fantasy fiction, you will love Welcome to Superhero School! I can't wait to read the sequel! Larry James, President and CEO, CitySquare. Author

Welcome to Superhero School starts with a blast and just keeps going! Every teen and young adult I know will love reading this amazing novel by first-time author, Gracie Dix. With twists and turns galore, our teen superheroes navigate controlling their awesome superpowers - as well as fighting evil and learning about family, friendships, and team work. Fast-paced and charmingly frantic with exciting plot twists on every page, this is a fun romp through a world we normally only see at the movies. Two thumbs up! Paige McDaniel,

This is a story of superheroes, but it is also a story of friendship and perseverance. Again and again, the characters practice problem solving and never giving up. They learn that both asking for and accepting help are an important part of success. They learn that sometimes it's hard to be a part of a team, and that you must learn to work together. They learn to value their differences and to celebrate each other's successes. These are life lessons we all need to learn. That these lessons are wrapped into a fast-paced book filled with exciting adventures makes Welcome to Superhero School a sure hit for both readers and parents alike! Larissa Linton, Co-Founder, Heroes for Children



As a Theatre Educator and Director of Fine Arts, I am immensely impressed with this wonderful debut novel by a gifted young author. Welcome to Superhero School is fast-paced and loaded with characters who truly care for one another. The novel reads like a screenplay. I could easily see this becoming a graphic novel or comic book series. I think that adding illustrations would be a bonus as well, as the vivid writing causes the reader to visualize the characters and their actions. In conclusion, I am filled with amazement with this inaugural manuscript and look forward to seeing more from this creative and enterprising young author. Anné Hughes, Director of Fine Arts, Shelton School.
