Laser vision isn’t so hot when you’re cross-eyed, and supersonic flight’s a real downer when motion sickness keeps you grounded.
Twelve-year-old Marshall Preston is a Defective–a person with superhuman abilities that are restricted by some very human setbacks. While other kids are recruited to superhero teams, Marshall’s stuck in seventh grade with a kid who can run at super speed but can’t turn a corner, another with a radioactive peanut allergy that turns him into a swollen Hulk, and a telepath who reads everyone’s thoughts out loud.
Defectives like Marshall aren’t exactly superhero material, but when he uncovers a plot to destroy one of the greatest superhero teams of all time, Marshall and his less-than-super friends set out to prove that just because you’re defective doesn’t mean you can’t save the day.
With full illustrations throughout and a funny, heartwarming story, Superfail is the perfect book for reluctant young readers and the superhero fan.
- "Brunner has delivered a story full of quirkiness and self-deprecating humor, and... Mackay breathes uproarious life into a delightfully awkward and occasionally gross narrative."—-Kirkus Reviews
- "With humor, action, and a strong cast of characters, this title will appeal to fans of Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid and anyone looking for a humorous underdog story."—School Library Journal
