Thom Creed is used to being on his own. Even though he's a basketball star, his high school classmates keep their distance. They have picked up on something different about Thom. Plus, he can't escape his father's history. Hal Creed was one of the greatest and most beloved superheroes of his time until a catastrophic event left him disfigured and an outcast. The last thing in the world Thom wants is to add to his father's pain, so he keeps secrets. Like that he has special powers. And he's been asked to join the League -- the very organization of superheroes that disowned Hal.
But joining the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes:
* Scarlett, who can control fire but not her anger
* Typhoid Larry, who can make anyone sick with his touch
* Ruth, a wise old woman who can see the future
Together these unlikely heroes become friends and begin to uncover a plot to kill the superheroes. This groundbreaking and widely acclaimed novel tells an unforgettable story about love, loss, and redemption.
