Book Review #254 - Joshua Dread by Lee Bacon

Joshua Dread
He wants to save the world.

His parents want to destroy it.

When your parents are supervillains, it’s hard to have a normal life. In the past two days, Joshua’s parents have tried to destroy the world, the houseplant has threatened to kill him, and his body has started doing weird stuff. Really weird stuff. Then his parents give him a book to help explain his new Gyft. It turns out Joshua has a superpower, just like them. But he doesn’t have to use it for evil, right?

My Rating: 5/5

I received this book for review from Hardie Grant Egmont Australia.

I really enjoyed this book. I found the whole superhero/supervillian concept really unique and refreshing.

There were enough plot twists that made the book not entirely predictable but for the most part it was pretty straight forward.

I liked Joshua as the protagonist. He was a little immature at times but you can forgive him for that because he was a likeable character.
