Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Big Hero Six when a group of young but defective superheroes attempt to save the day! Laser vision isnt so hot when youre crosseyed, and supersonic flights a real downer when motion sickness keeps you grounded. Twelveyearold Marshall Preston is a Defectivea person with superhuman abilities that are restricted by some very human setbacks. While other kids are recruited to superhero teams, Marshalls stuck in seventh grade with a kid who can run at super speed but cant turn a corner, another with a radioactive peanut allergy that turns him into a swollen Hulk, and a telepath who reads everyones thoughts out loud. Defectives like Marshall arent exactly superhero material, but when he uncovers a plot to destroy one of the greatest superhero teams of all time, Marshall and his lessthansuper friends set out to prove that just because youre defective doesnt mean you cant save the day. With full illustrations throughout and a funny, heartwarming story, Superfail is the perfect book for reluctant young readers and the superhero fan.
