Wonderboy

By Nicole Burstein

Joseph 'Wilco' Wilkes is bullied by the rich kids at his school. But everything is about to change when he learns he can move things with his mind...

A funny and frank superhero story set in the world of Othergirl. Joseph ‘Wilco’ Wilkes is one of life’s losers – he’s picked on, pushed around, and bullied by the rugby boys at the posh private school he attends on a scholarship. But his life is about to change: Wilco learns he can move things with his mind. Will this be his chance to play the hero, get the girl and finally stand up for himself? Or are things just going to come crashing down around his head? Becoming a proper hero will be quite the leap of faith...

  • Perfect for young teen fans of Marvel and DC superheroes and comics
  • Set in the same world as Othergirl, can be read separately.
  • Praise for Othergirl: 'This suspenseful fantasy is about growing up and finding yourself' Sunday Times
