review Junior Hero Blues ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ns that Javier gets all the responsibility and none of the cool gadgets It's hard enough working for the Legion of Liberty and fighting against the evil Organization all while trying to keep on top of schoolwork and suspicious parents Add in a hunky boyfriend who's way out of Javier's league and an even hunkier villain who kee. I m always looking for new books in the LGBT YA space so I was excited when I saw that Riptide Publishing was launching a new YA imprint JK Pendragon s Junior Hero Blues is one of Triton s first titles and if it s a good representation of the uality we can expect from them then I m very optimistic about their future booksFirst a little cover loveI want to give a shout out to Michelle Fairbanks whose work I haven t seen before and who absolutely nailed the cover I love the color scheme and representation of Liberty City in the background and just the overall freshness of it It s so eye catching The cover was the reason I initially wanted to check out the book and I m very glad I didSecond the title is perfect Our hero Javier truly does have the Junior Hero blues It s rough being a high schooler having to keep a secret identity constantly coming up with excuses and dodging your parents uestions and being at the beck and call of the Legion all while trying to be a normal teenager As the blurb tells us being a Junior Hero means all the responsibility and none of the cool gadgets and as far as I could tell that seems like the absolute truth I loved Javier s assessment here It s a complete rip off being a Junior Hero by the way You re supposed to be only assigned to low risk stuff but half the time it s just as dangerous as anything else anyway and the rest of the time it s freaking boring Javier aka Blue Spark is an awesome kid I m not always a huge fan of first person narratives but I loved Javier s voice from the beginning Sure he s a superhero but he s also a real teenager with homework who s experiencing first love and pouting and slamming the door when his parents piss him off Pendragon s portrayal of Javier was fantastic Javier s crush Rick wasn t uite as likeable though I realize that was partly by design However I did enjoy their little courtship for the most partThe story itself revolves around the ongoing fight between the Legion the good guys and the Organization the bad guys and foiling whatever current trouble the Organization is stirring up And right in the center of that trouble is Blue Spark s sworn enemy Jimmy Black The alternate universesci fi aspects of the story are so fun I enjoyed the world building and fun Sky High feel of the action scenes The battle between Blue Spark and Jimmy Black takes on a different turn as the story goes on and the author does a good job of keeping things interesting I also loved how Pendragon handled Javier s disillusionment with the Legion and subseuent realization of how he felt about his involvement and them And that was what the Legion was Not a perfect force for good straight out of a comic book Just a group of people trying to do the right thing And that was why I belonged with them Junior Hero Blues also touched on so many elements that are staples in YA books bullying acceptance class differences and diversity and handled them all wonderfully with sensitivity and often humor This book was such a fun refreshing read There was great action a sweet little romance and enjoyable characters I would definitely recommend this to YA fans and will be putting it on the gift list for some of the teenagers in my lifeReviewed by Jules for The Novel Approach Reviews

Read as part of the PopSugar Reading Challenge 2020 to fill 14 A book by an author with flora or fauna in their nameOops didn t exactly mean to read this all in one day but sometimes these things just happenI really enjoyed this I love that it started with the relationship rather than culminating in it because so much ueer fiction is entirely about the gay guy getting the guy and when that s just the given first step it leaves room for so much whilst still allowing there to be a ueer romance storyline I liked it a lot is what I m sayingThere s one relatively major thing I wish had been done differently but it s definitely a spoiler so view spoilerI kind of didn t massively jive with the brainwashing storyline I can understand why the choice was made but I really preferred the initial thought I had which was essentially what Rick was peddling That there are no bad guys and good guys and he had legitimate reasons for working for the Organisation I liked the idea of he and Javier considering themselves on opposite sides of the euation but ultimately realising that they essentially both had the same values and learning to see each other and everything in a new light But what actually happened was confirmation that there are bad guys and good guys and the bad guys are bad and they were doing bad things I just hoped it could be a little nuanced hide spoiler

review Junior Hero Blues ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Last year Javier Medina was your average socially awkward gay high schooler with a chip on his shoulder This year he's well pretty much the same but with bonus superpowers a costume with an ab window to show off his new goods and a secret identity as the high flying wise cracking superhero Blue SparkBut being a Junior Hero mea. ARC received from Riptide Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis was so much fun to read Through its young narrator whose voice is genuine and hilarious and oddly compelling we get an inside look on the least glamorous side to being a superhero or rather one in training whose job seems to be the dirty work while the actual official superheroes are all about PR and giving orders without getting their clothes too dirty themselves Javi s story is relatable and engaging beyond all the superhero stuff that s involved he s one of the few teenagers in books that I actually felt that acted reacted felt thought and talked like a real teenager Not many writers can accomplish their characters to feel so authentic which is why I think this story is extra awesome As a fan of superhero stories I think this one was really good I enjoyed the dynamics between the superheroes the whole take on responsibilities and the introduction of the grey area opposing the idea that you can either be a hero or a villain Plus Rick s arc was one of the strongest points in the narrative making him one of the most interesting characters I ve read about at least this year So interesting and uite diverse characters fun narrative fast paced action packed reading What else could you possibly want in order to pick this
