This is book number 1 in the The Extraordinaries series.
Nick Bell is a character who truly stole my heart from the beginning. He’s funny, awkward, and unapologetically obsessed with the vigilante superheroes called Extraordinaries. Nick’s plan to make himself extraordinary is every bit as cringy and flawed as one might expect, but you gotta love his determination. This is a heartwarming and hilarious story that celebrates the differences that make us who we are. I am more than ready to read a sequel!— Becky
"Michael Lesley's upbeat narration captures all the whimsy, humor, and heart of this YA superhero romp...This sweet queer coming-of-age story will please listeners looking for something fun, surprising, and affirming." -- AudioFile Magazine

Nick Bell? Not extraordinary. But being the most popular fanfiction writer in the Extraordinaries fandom is a superpower, right?
After a chance encounter with Shadow Star, Nova City’s mightiest hero (and Nick’s biggest crush), Nick sets out to make himself extraordinary. And he’ll do it with or without the reluctant help of Seth Gray, Nick's best friend (and maybe the love of his life).
