    Flypaper Boy is someone you ll grow to love He s a great character that was really fun to root for as the story unfolded I know, it sounds like he s a superhero with cheesy powers right And he is, at first As you read this, as titled, coming of age story it stretches out with the character into much than you might be expecting from this book I m not going to give anything away in this review, but the story grows with the protagonist and reaches out into some very cool places.I have a soft spot for coming of age books They tend to be my favorite I think that s because in a good book the main character goes through a big change and what change suits a life than transitioning from a kid to an adult Right off the bat you start with a great hook Here s the opening line Jimmy lay in a car, probably in the trunk, his head resting against what felt like the wheel well, and his arms secured behind him.The author Philip Carroll wastes no time easing you into the story world but instead leads with the inciting incident flinging you into action right as the story begins You get some great breathing time after that as the character deals with his new and strange environment The back story is sprinkled through so you get to know about Jimmy as you see him begin to learn new things and grow as a person You re not sure where the story is going to go and it seems like the protagonist is going to be stuck in his new home forever, then everything changes As you re launched into act two you discover a whole new world with the main character I don t want to give it away but if you look at the cover art, which I created by the way, there are clues Jimmy makes new friends and some pretty bad enemies.I was really engaged during the action scenes in this book and there were many They became fun and intense as Jimmy learns how to use his powers The relationships between the characters were very important in this book too It does a good job dealing with teenage love with the hormones and feelings teens have treated realistically and yet there are no inappropriate scenes It doesn t ignore the tension felt between the male and female characters and there are some intimate scenes but never than kissing I appreciated that and it makes this book that much appealing for parents to get this book for their kids This was a great book for me, a guy in his early 30s, and it will be a great book for teenagers too The main character goes through a lot of the stuff they re going through and if they re like me when I was a teenager the fact that this book has a character with super powers will really draw them in Most dads like super heroes so they ll like it too just as I did.There were a lot of characters in this book and I loved them all In the case of the bad guys I loved to hate them I liked how this book about teenagers was not void of adults There were a lot of adult characters too and while most weren t main characters they still played a critical role in the life of the protagonist I appreciated that too and I think most parents will be happy to read a story that is all about the teens but the adults aren t bumbling idiots who get in the way More like real life they re there to offer help and advice when the teens are dealing with stuff Grab this book for yourself and then buy a copy for a teenager you know You and they will really dig it I know I did.

    Flypaper Boy thinks his super power is lame I mean really, what can a super hero do when his super power is sticking to things until someone comes along with some nail polish remover to free him That is until he is kidnapped by bad guys and is forced to become a super villain What is a good guy to do, when he has to use his powers for the forces of evil Flypaper Boy Coming of Age follows Jimmy Wheeler AKA Flypaper Boy on his first real adventure This is a super hero book I have said it before and I will say it again, I am really not that much of a super hero fan, but this book caught my attention and held it.High school can be hard enough if you are different, harder still if you have to move to a new school Through it all FlyPaper boy manages to keep his cool, remember his mission and stay true to his moral code.Let s be honest here, Jim Wheeler is a teenaged boy, and he is surrounded by teenaged girls He is going to notice them He is going have feelings for some of them But all the while he manages keep a lid on his hormones and and stick to his moral code, not only for being a hero, but also for being a human That is one of my favorite parts of the book Multiple times he is presented with opportunities where he could have taken advantage of the situation, and yet he never does.This book is not so much about being a super hero, probably why I liked it despite my normal aversion to comic book super heroes, and much about being a kid in a tough situation, trying to find his way through who happens to have super powers.Mr Carroll did a wonderful job, grabbing my attention and keeping it His characters have depth, they have flaws, and they have to live life the best way they know how I really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to sharing it with my kids.A Note for parents If you are looking for a good book to start the school year with, this is a good one It is certainly safe for middle grade readers though probably older ones will appreciate it If they are still in the eeew boys girls are yucky stage they might want to wait another year or two And the book is aimed at boys than girls, though I think girls will like it too.

    Just EnoughI never fully got into this book I like Jimmy Jerry enough but his character was hard to follow He was very composed for a teenage boy and had no trouble expressing his emotions and thoughts I ve never meet a teenager like that so it wasn t very believable The superhero aspect was confusing, how it was government controlled but no one seemed to know much about it The villains seemed to have everything well planned and organized so I have no idea who the ending could have possibly ended the way it did But it was interesting enough to finish.

    A nice surprise I love comic books and superheroes When I saw this on one of my mailing lists, I decided to give it a try It ended up being a very good story about growing up, finding yourself and how sometimes your gifts are better than you think they are going to be Lots of fun and I d love to read stories set at the school.
