When Murph Cooper begins his new school several weeks into the beginning of semester, he can't help but feel a bit out of his depth.

And it's not because he's worried about where to sit, making friends, and fitting in. It's because his mom has enrolled him at a school for superheroes. And unlike his fellow students, who can control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever.

But Murph's totally normal abilities might just be what the world needs. Because not far away is a great big bad guy who is half man and half wasp, and his mind is abuzz with evil plans . . .

With black-and-white illustrations throughout, this laugh-out-loud story proves that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

    I recently read this book, and it was awesome. There was something that caught me and kept me hooked to the very end of the book. This all started when Murph moves to a new city. His mom looks for a school, and one day she finds two simple words on a wooden fence.- "The School".. His first period was CAPE and some kids were breaking T.V.'s, making two horses appear, expanding his body parts. Murph had no such talents and he was confused as to why he was even here. At the end he finally realized you don't need to have superpowers to be a superhero. This book is very fun to read and I enjoyed reading it a lot.

      I suggest to buy this book because it teaches you that you don't need any super powers to be a hero
