Captain Superlative

We rated this book:


This is a wonderfully touching story about kindness, being yourself, enjoying life, and the limitations of human mortality. Captain Superlative is a so-called “superhero” who tries to “save” a middle school from the evil Dogmar Hagen. With the help of her sidekick, Janey, she engages in a series of funny and exciting adventures to uncover what truly matters in life. Together, they ward off a bully who makes Janey their target. The plot is good and keeps you thinking about life, friendship, and how to make the most of what you have to offer. This story is full of mystery and suspense, with the perfect mix of cliffhangers and surprises. The characters stay shrouded in mystery until the end. The story is well written, and the language and dialogue are good, although at times I wished for less dialogue. The story feels real and true to life. The moral of the story is to be yourself and stay true to your friends. This book reminded me of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, and it is a great “standalone” book. The ultimate tragedy almost broke my heart, but this story is so wonderful and sad at the same time.
