Booklist Review: "Teenage Clark Kent, the boy who will become Superman, feels lost among his teammates and school friends. He's actively tried to be a hero, but that has led to more collateral damage than the original accidents might have. He's the anxious stranger, forever trapped outside, looking in on the things he thinks he can't have. Modern Smallville is beset with modern problems: a stop-and-frisk law is coming up on the ballots, and immigrants are disappearing from the city, quietly whisked away for no doubt nefarious purposes. Clark must follow the clues foreshadowing his future as an investigative reporter and face up to the fact that this world needs heroes, and he might need to be one of them. The DC Icons series, which uses popular and award-winning YA authors to give classic heroes a new spin (see Sarah J. Maas' Catwoman: Soulstealer, 2018), works well. This combination of Superman and de la Peña will fly off library shelves, as the award-winning author offers a glimpse into the Man of Steel's beginning as a teenage outsider.--Stacey Comfort Copyright 2010 Booklist"
