by Jason Lethcoe
Release date: 2005
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, fantasy, childrens


As the most unpopular kid in high school, Summer Jones isn't ready for much of anything, except for teasing from classmates. Then Jasper, her eccentric Dad, makes a shocking disclosure: He's a professor at Zoom’s Academy, a school that develops super-powers in select students. Before Summer can say "lost his marbles," Jasper gives her a strange ring, which glows the instant Summer slips it on her finger.

Okay, now she's ready to be totally freaked out!

So begins Summer's amazing adventures, as she blasts off to an astonishing campus in the clouds. It is a place where rockets run on lime gelatin, shiny brass robots zip around, and caped (soon-to-be-crusading) kids fly the skies and fine tune their special gifts – from lightning speed and elastic limbs to telepathy and colossal strength. Can it be true that Summer, a geeky girl with a paralyzing fear of heights, is a budding crime-fighting super hero?

Yet while the faculty of Zoom's Academy tries to discover what sort of super-powers Summer actually possesses, the dark headmaster of Zoom’s archrival, Grave’s School for the Villainous Arts, plots a hostile take-over, in which one unsuspecting girl will play a vital role in its sinister execution.
