David J. Schwartz


Crown/Three Rivers Press, June 2008

In the summer of 2001, five college students in Madison, Wisconsin, wake up one morning with superpowers. It’s a story about growing up; it’s a story about accepting responsibility for your actions and for your world … and it’s also a story about becoming invisible, and flying, and running faster than the rain.

“Schwartz strikes the right balance between vicarious superhero adventure and thoughtful reflection on the hidden costs of being a Good Samaritan.”

—Carl Hays, Booklist

“A book for everyone who’s ever wondered what superpower would be most fun or whether Batman or Superman would win in a fight. (And for everyone else who’s ever wondered what made comic books so much fun.) David J. Schwartz has written a first novel with superpowers, smarts, and heart to spare.”

—Kelly Link, Author of MAGIC FOR BEGINNERS
