Overview

The third book in the series! The summer is coming to an end and Joshua—along with his friends Sophie, Milton, and Miranda—are about to begin seventh grade. But when a trip to the mall turns into an attack by nFinity and a couple of Phineas Vex's goons, it becomes clear that they're no longer safe in Sheepsdale. To ensure their safety, Joshua and his friends must enroll in Alabaster Academy, a school for Gyfted kids. Located on an isolated island where there are only two types of weather (rainy and very rainy), Alabaster  is filled with every kind of superpowered student you can imagine—not to mention a whole new species of bully. But when Alabaster comes under attack, Joshua and his friends are forced to escape once again. Their only hope for survival is to find a mysterious key that will enable complete world domination for whoever possesses it. But what if Phineas Vex finds the key first?

Gr 4–6—After his dangerous and very public summer with the Alliance of the Impossible in The Nameless Hero (Delacorte, 2013), Joshua is hoping for a normal year in seventh grade—or at least as normal as things can get for the son of the world's greatest supervillains. Unfortunately, the renegade nFinity is back, and he hasn't forgotten his humiliating defeat by the Alliance. The ex-hero is out for revenge—and he's still working for the evil mastermind Vex. Meanwhile, Joshua's parents, the Dread Duo, get together with Captain Justice, their arch-nemesis (and the father of Joshua's good friend Sophie), to consider a safe school environment for the kids—their old alma mater, Alabaster Academy. Between the super-charged curriculum, super-bullies, and secret identities, the friends have difficulty adjusting to their new school—and then they discover nFinity and his goons have followed them. With the traitors' help, Vex has infiltrated the Academy—and is seeking control of The Device—a potent weapon that will enable him to enslave the world. Somewhere at Alabaster is the Dominion Key, which will activate The Device. Alabaster Academy is a kind of Hogwarts for Superheroes, filled with secret passages, ghostly legends, slightly dotty professors, and the occasional death trap. Readers may wish there was more here about life in a super-school, but they will enjoy the series' hallmark bizarre contraptions, including a flying fortress shaped like a massive duck and wildly creepy monsters like the human/motorcycle Cyclaurs. There is also a sweet, gentle side note featuring Sophie's godfathers—two elderly superheroes, Mr. Marvelous and the Whiz Kid, now living together in quiet retirement, but ready to spring back into action for one last exploit. A worthy addition to an original and creative series.—Elaine E. Knight, formerly at Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL
