At one of the Summer Reading Workshops in February, a librarian asked for superhero themed books for her teen book club. I did a bit of research and thought I’d share it.
- Chasing Shadows by Swati Avasthi
- Dull Boy by Sarah Cross
- Dark Star by Bethany Frenette
- Hero by Perry Moore
- V is for Villain by Peter Moore
- The Indestructibles by Matthew Phillion
- Meta by Tom Reynolds
- Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
While there are a lot of books for teens with protagonists who have superpowers or supernatural abilities of some sort, there were not nearly as many books with a superhero element for teens as there were for kids and adults.
