Rise of Renegade X

The Rise of Renegade XThe Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked this book.  I've seen a few kids as superheros and liked a few but thought most were kind of cheesy.  By casting the main character as a villain, he is free not to be perfect from the start and I have to say even though I love the teens at my library, it's A LOT easier seeing them as super villains than heroes.

Some of the characters are rather flat and stereotypes, but it seems more intentional than a weakness in the book.  I'd pair this with maybe Hero by Moore. Give to fans of the movies Sky High, KickAss, or Scott Pilgrim.
