18670060Title: The Madrona Heroes Register

Author: Hillel Cooperman

Genre: YA Superhero Fantasy

Someone in ten-year-old Binny Jordan’s family has a super power – and it’s not her. Binny’s seven-year-old sister Cassie can turn herself invisible and now a strange man is keenly interested in what Cassie can do. Binny’s parents seem more distracted than ever, and her older brother Zach is hiding something of his own. Binny needs to find a way to protect her sister, but she’s never felt more alone.

Binny’s siblings start to show strange powers, in particular her younger sister Cassie. One of the neighbors seems particularly interested in her kid sister, and Binny doesn’t trust it at all. When they find out more about how they were born, and the neighbors’ strange connection to them, in addition to Cassie’s power to disappear, Zach and Binny realize something very, very strange is going on.

A quirky fantasy adventure with three siblings and one of their friends starring in the main roles. I liked it, and thought it could be used as a script for one of those Nicolodeon series on TV. There’s definitely certain depth to the characters, and each sibling has a distinct personality.

A solid read, excellent writing, and a good story.
