Captain Superlative by J.S. Puller

Hey everyone, it’s Sarah!

I received a copy of this ARC from our librarian book buzz. I am hustling through all of the ARCs I got from the last season, but it is overwhelming. At this point, it is an older title, but still a goodie.

Janey ‘s only desire is to be invisible in her middle school. The school bully, Dagmar, is ruthless and Janey doesn’t want to be on the receiving end of her hate. While Dagmar is the perfect student to the adults around school, she tortures her peers, who try never to get caught up in her wrath. Until, Captain Superlative arrives on the scene. This new school superhero has begun to make it a better place, by holding open doors, giving positive shout outs to here classmates, and standing up to Dagmar. Janey is curious about Captain Superlative’s identity and quest. When Captain Superlative decides to make Janey her sidekick, Janey may have to give up being invisible and stand up for what is right.

This story is totally corny and plays on many of tropes that will tug at your heartstrings…think how puppies always equal cute. That being said, it is an enjoyable book and is inspirational to readers who are currently going through the torture that is middle school. The plot twists weren’t surprising. However, the characters were cute and sweet. Perfect for those tween readers.
