Templeton Academy- the superhero high school is finally open! The prestigious institution is recruiting the best of the best to enroll in its student body. The school is as mysterious as it is exclusive.
Grady Whill thinks there is nothing special about him to make the grade. However, his best friend, Aarush Patel has been selected and thinks Grady has the right stuff. Even school bully Elwood Bledsoe is attending.
If Grady is fortunate enough to be picked, his guardian has forbidden him to attend. Will a family secret prevent Grady from becoming the superhero he was destined to be?
Grady Whill and the Templeton Codex: A Superhero High School Adventure is not your ordinary superhero tale. Main characters Grady and best friend Aarush have what many may consider to be invisible disabilities. Grady suffers from asthma while Aarush is on the autism spectrum. Despite their daily challenges these two make an impressive team when it comes to solving crimes.
Perfect for middle grade readers, this book encourages readers to think of people as a sum of our parts and that we are not defined by our disabilities. I love the friendship between Grady and Aarush. Their chemistry is heartwarming, and their personalities are endearing. They are what a best friend should be. The plot is engaging and easy to read. I was engaged from start to finish and couldn’t put this one down! The descriptions are vivid leaving the reader feeling like there are in the story too.
What I loved most is how inclusive this book is, I haven't read many like it and I hope to see more. The book ends with a bit of a cliffhanger; I hope this indicates book 2 is on the way. I know I will be anxiously waiting to find out!
