Okay, so I finished this book quite some time ago, and am just now getting around to the review. I was asked by a friend if I liked it as soon as I'd finished it, and I replied that I did, indeed, like it. But for some reason, I described it as 'believable.' It's not actually believable at all, but I think what I meant is that it's set in a much less Bizarro world that most NBAS books do. It's basically in OUR world, with people doing things for reasons I can understand (well, the good guys, at least), with one MAJOR Bizarro element. Namely, SuperGhost. This is an easily digestible book. I read it in one sitting. There is a maximum word limit to NBAS books, so it's not very long at all, and therefore, it rushes along at a break neck speed. I have a feeling that if Scott had more room, he'd have probably developed the story more than it was (NOT to say the story isn't comprehensive; there's just not a lot of background or descriptive parts). The heroes were all maimed underdogs to begin with, and to see their unity during their combat with SuperGhost was quite touching. Trina, Hank, Darren, Michelle...they all work so well together, and the dynamics between them is comedic and serious, by turns. Overall, I recommend this book if you're looking for a very talented newbie author. The story leans more towards sci-fi than anything, and it's kinda like the Bizarro Ghostbusters. It's light fare, although some of the amputee's stories are sad and make you think. It's short, fun, and captivating...a perfect books for lounging around with on a lazy afternoon!
