When Doctor Donovan spies thirteen-year-old Bobby fighting to keep a bully away from a younger child, Bobby is invited to attend Donovan’s Academy. The classes are intense, and it’s only with the help of Ivana, the brilliant (and just as arrogant) girl who’s been assigned to show him around, that he makes it through his first day.
But Donovan’s Academy holds a secret. Doctor Donovan (a former teen sidekick) is training the next generation of superheroes. When Bobby learns the real purpose of Donovan’s Academy, he’s thrilled but unsure he has a place there without powers of his own. Plus, how does he keep his pacifist mother from finding out about the martial arts classes (not to mention the girl with laser eyes)?
Soon, though, it’s time for him to find out if he’s a hero. Ivana’s supervillain father has come to claim her, and only Bobby can save her.
