LoveReading View on Bulletcatcher

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8 Troy is quietly reading a Batman comic when all hell breaks loose. He’s caught up in a terrorist attack that kills his parents – so far so Bruce Wayne – but also reveals he has a superpower: he’s bulletproof, due to some biological quirk his body can withstand ten times the impact that steel can. Troy is whisked away by mysterious secret agent types to train with a group of similarly extraordinary teens. And of course, he gets to come up against the man who killed his parents. Bulletcatcher has as many bangs and explosions per page as the best comic adventure, and convincing human relationships between the SPEAR kids too. A super-satisfying read for fans of Avengers and their ilk. ~ Andrea Reece
