Teaser Tuesday: Hero


Just grab your current read, open to a random page, and share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The moonlight reflected off an old medal the president had once given Dad for single-handedly fending off an invasion of telepathic starfish-shaped aliens and illuminated a very distinct impression on the thug's face. Panic.
from chapter 1 of Hero by Perry Moore

Okay, I admit the writing isn't perfect (run-on sentence much?), and there is evidently a more juvenile-fantastical sheen to the superhero theme than Soon I Will Be Invincible. However, I did really enjoy Teen Titans and X-Men Evolution when I watched them a few years back, and I'm getting similar teenager-discovering-and-dealing-with-new-powers vibes from this novel. Also, I'm rooting for the Man in Black/Thom because Uberman/Thom has a bit of the Harry/Ginny feel to it =T
