“Barry Lyga proves himself adept at working in classic superhero tropes in a clever new way. Any kid who feels misunderstood by adults will appreciate Kyle’s internal dialogue….” — GeekDad, Wired.com
Kyle Camden had a pretty good life: Smart kid, popular, renowned and beloved by the kids of Bouring Middle School for his legendary pranks, practical jokes that made the adults of Bouring look like the idiots they truly are.
And then one night, Kyle witnessed the arrival of the alien Mighty Mike. Better yet, he gained super-powers and super-intelligence at the same time!
Now Kyle is the only one who believes Mighty Mike isn’t all he’s cracked up to be. Can Kyle prove to the world that Mike is a danger to us all, or will he end up as the world’s greatest Archvillain?
