Hero selected for the first Rainbow Project bibliography

“Perry Moore brings an enticing new genre to the world of young adult novels.” — MAURICE SENDAK

“Heroes come in many varieties. The newest, very likely unprecedented, is from the multi-talented Perry Moore. Truly a groundbreaking novel, its dedication reads: For Everyone. And indeed it is.” — LLOYD ALEXANDER

“Wow! This totally original, can’t-put-it-down page turner is more than a terrific read, it’s an unforgettable experience—not to be missed!” — STAN LEE

“Hero isn’t your average coming-of-age novel. And Thom Creed isn’t your average hero. Perry Moore’s genre-busting tale of a teenager with human emotions and superhuman powers is a true original. Thanks, Perry, for moving us in to the future and giving us a great ride while you’re at it.” — JAMES HOWE


“Finally, someone has broken the mold by creating a dynamic new superhero for a new generation. It’s about time!” LISI HARRISON

“Part action-adventure, part coming-of-age, part cultural commentary. All parts of HERO are wonderfully absorbing.” — TERI LESESNE, The Goddess of YA Literature

“The story tackles love, friendship, and the eternal struggle to come to terms with who we really are in a tactful, interesting, and well-developed manner….A real page-turner.” — SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

“Filled with complex, inexorable villains and dogged, disillusioned heroes, this reinvention of the superhero genre spans glory and angst, isolation and romance for a larger-than-life coming of age.” — THE HORN BOOK
