Publisher's Summary

Knowledge is power. That would be the motto of Lander University, had it not been snatched up and used to death by others long before the school was founded. For while Lander offers a full range of courses to nearly all students, it also offers a small number of specialty classes to a very select few. Lander is home to the Hero Certification Program, a curriculum designed to develop students with superhuman capabilities, commonly known as Supers, into official Heroes. Five of this year's freshmen are extra special. They have a secret aside from their abilities - one that they must guard from even their classmates.
For every one person in the world with abilities they can control, there are three who lack such skill. These lesser super beings - Powereds, as they are called - have always been treated as burdens and second-class citizens. Though there has been ample research in the area, no one has ever succeeded in turning a Powered into a regular human, let alone a Super.
That is, until now....

Brilliant Story

I originally picked up this book when going through a phase of loving stories about super heroes. Many others I picked up and discarded, but this story stuck with me. Drew has created a wholly new and unique way of looking at Heroes, how they might get to the standard they achieve, how they would impact the world around them by simply being.
If you're looking for something different from the usual teen friendly bog standard Super hero literature, I beg you to give this one ago. It doesn't disappoint.

As for the audiobook version, I really liked the voice actor who read the book. Many times I'll buy hear an audiobook if something I've read and find that the voice I hear doesn't match in my head, but Drew's style of writing is so individualised that they way it's read almost completely matches how I've read it in the past.

A great read or listen I can't recommend strongly enough!
