Waiting on Wednesday (28): Hero

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

HeroThis week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is Hero by Mike Lupica.  It's due out on November 2, 2010 from Penguin.

Book Description
Fourteen-year-old Zach Harriman can feel the changes. The sharpening of his senses. The incredible strength. The speed, as though he can text message himself across miles. The confidence and the strange need to patrol Central Park at night. His dad had been a hero, a savior to America and a confidante of the president. Then he died, and the changes began in Zach. What Zach never knew was that his father was no ordinary man--he was a superhero, battling the world's evil. This is a battle that has been waged for generations and that knows no boundaries.  And now it's Zach's turn to take on the fight. It's Zach's turn to become a hero.
