An ordinary kid like Ben Braver is no match for a band of super villains, but he may be humanity’s only hope in Marcus Emerson’s Ben Braver and the Vortex of Doom.
The world will never be the same . . .
When the baddest of bad guys threatens the world with a giant black hole, Ben Braver is the only one who can stop it. Ready or not, he’s about to learn what it really means to be a hero.
The Ben Braver series is “a crazy fun ride–action packed and loaded with laughs!” says Max Brallier, author of the New York Times–bestselling series The Last Kids on Earth.

Unfortunately, we didn’t receive this series of books with enough time to read them all before this post! Simon started with book 1, The Super Life of Ben Braver, and he hasn’t finished it yet. He told me that the book is about a boy with secret powers who goes to a special school, but he doesn’t know what his powers are yet. I find this funny, because I can think of at least 3 other books that start with this same premise! It must be popular for this age group. I asked him if there is a mean student at the school and he said yes! This book is unique from some of the others because it has pictures on almost every page. As you know, my kids love graphic novels, so while this isn’t a graphic novel, the pictures are enticing. The book is a good length and seems to contain an engaging story. I hope that my kids will both read the rest of the series.
