Speed of Sight – A Superhero Adventure
Twelve-year-old Pete Plain is an ordinary boy who lives in a crazy town called Jericho. On the last day of school, his friend Jack gives him a powerful but illegal comic book to hide. That afternoon the school bully shoots Jack with toxic slime. Uncertain how to help him, Pete sneaks a peek at the comic and gets drawn into a different world. There he goes on an unforgettable adventure.
When Jack discovers what Pete has done, he takes the book away. As Pete schemes to get it back, he sees his home life fall apart. How can he stop the ghostly grizzly that is dividing his family? The author of the forbidden comic books gives Pete special gifts of super sight and super speed. Now he finds himself in REAL trouble.
The forces of evil that haunt Pete's hometown are determined to slow him down and make his powers of no effect. The question is, will Pete find a way to overcome them or will he wallow in the bitter malady known as Sadly Absent Dad Syndrome? Much is at stake, for the slime is deadly, and catching the villains behind it will prove to be no easy task.
About C.R. Flamingbush (Baltimore, Maryland Author)
C.R. Flamingbush is originally from Wheaton, Illinois. She graduated from Georgetown University with a bachelor's degree in German and linguistics. She has always liked languages and worked seven years for the Department of Defense. She quit that relatively easy job in order to take on the much more difficult task of raising four children.
C.R. home-schooled for several years, during which she developed a love of writing. She also did some substitute teaching at a Christian school her children attended. There she taught Spanish for one year, using games and pictures she developed as teaching tools. She has also written skits for VBS and women's ministry and has illustrated several children's books.
C.R. writes Christian fiction as well as whimsical stories designed to entertain, educate, and heal the brokenhearted. She writes primarily for middle grade, young adult, and the young in heart. She likes poetry but is careful not to let her rhymes take over her books (in some cases with more success than others). Her real name is Nancy but she prefers to use her pen name C.R. Flamingbush, which is the name under which her first novel, Speed of Sight: a Superhero Adventure, has recently been published. More sequels are planned.
