The Joshua Dread series
Friday, November 7
When your parents are supervillains, it's hard to have a normal life. Joshua Dread tries to keep a low profile—not even his best friend, Milton, knows his secret. Luckily Joshua’s not on anyone’s radar—not like Sophie, a new girl with a mysterious past who's got everyone talking. But weird stuff is happening. Pencils explode in his hand. He leaves scorched butt marks on the carpet. And he can send bullies crashing into lockers. Turns out Joshua has a superpower. But he doesn’t have to use it for evil, right? His parents give him a book to explain things... but nothing can prepare him for when smoke creatures start kidnapping bad guys. Is Joshua's family next?
