For Joshua Dread, middle school is proving to be, well,
awkward. Not only do bullies pick on him, but do you see those supervillains
over there trying to flood the world? The ones that everyone, including his
best friend Milton, are rooting for Captain Justice to take down? They’re the
Dread Duo, and they just happen to be his parents.
As if trying to hide his identity wasn’t hard enough, Joshua
has started leaving a trail of exploding pencils and scorched handprints in his
wake, and only Sophie, the new girl in town with a mysterious past, seems
unsurprised. When a violent attack at the Vile Fair makes it clear someone is
abducting supervillains, and that his parents may very well be next, Joshua
must enlist both Sophie and Milton’s help to save them.
Well-written, fast-paced, and remarkably funny, Joshua Dread is the first in a series
that will appeal far beyond its target audience.
