Someone in ten-year-old Binny Jordan’s family has a super power – and it’s not her. Binny’s seven-year-old sister Cassie can turn herself invisible and now a strange man is keenly interested in what Cassie can do. Binny’s parents seem more distracted than ever, and her older brother Zach is hiding something of his own. Binny needs to find a way to protect her sister, but she’s never felt more alone.
An awesome story about kids who discover they're superheroes! What more can you want? The story may not sound entirely original, but it has plenty of original elements.
I loved the kids' relationship with each other as siblings. Even in the middle of all the turmoil with their parents - who seem not to get along anymore, and who are more distracted than ever - they keep on bickering, but in the end, when it really matters, they work together for the common goal.
Great writing, lovely characters, and a good setting. The Madrona Heroes Register definitely deserved a sequel, and if it gets one, I'll read it, no doubt.
