SMASH: Trial by Fire

author: Chris A. Bolton
illustrator: Kyle Bolton

Super strong. Super fast. Super young! When Andrew Ryan accidentally inherits the strength and abilities of his superhero idol, Defender, his dreams may have just come true. . . . or NOT. Fighting crime isn’t easy when you’re in the fifth grade, and it takes a lot more than superpowers to be a hero.

“The full-color artwork is full of kinetic energy. . . . Smash pays homage to the genre while adding tweaks that make it all feel fresh.” — School Library Journal
