Not a bad story all in all, but a little too much action and not enough character development for my tastes. Some SPaG issues,.. It reads a bit like an episode for a tv series, but there is nothing wrong in that.
Diary of a Teenage Superhero (Teen Superheroes, book 1) by Darrell Pitt
I just felt it needed more depth. Oct 08, Jaxton A. The book Diary of a teenage superhero is about a bunch of kid that have super powers and their memories are erased so they have no idea who they are. Even tho the name of the book is not so good I liked this book because it was very fun and interesting to read it was the first book in a long time that I could not put down.
The reason I liked this book so much is because it was very action packed and exiting and I was always wanting to know what was going to happen next. My number one favorite cha The book Diary of a teenage superhero is about a bunch of kid that have super powers and their memories are erased so they have no idea who they are. My number one favorite character is Axel because there power where so cool and it was interesting to envision them in my mind. Jan 21, Nikhil Agrawal rated it it was ok. This book has been written in an innovative manner with a similar plot and storyline.
However, I must say that the story is fast paced at various places and then slows down in other sections. The plot also becomes convenient and predictable.
The author also fails to realise that and action and adventure book also has sentiments in it as well. The feelings described feel rushed and incomplete. Feb 23, Adam Windsor rated it it was ok Shelves: This is a light, fun read that moves along at a good pace, but the characters are paper-thin and the plot starts with "I woke up and couldn't remember who I was" and doesn't get any more original from there. It's tropes and cliches from cover to cover.

Diary of a Teenage Superhero: Volume 1 (Teen Superheroes) by Pitt, Darrell Book
The whole thing was a play-by-play diary. Mar 07, jaylan rated it it was amazing. The best book Best book ever I have to buy the next one I hope its is just ask good as the first one. Jan 31, Elizabeth rated it really liked it. A fun and engaging young adult book. More for that age group than adults, but still, it is well written and charming. Jun 18, Athira K rated it it was amazing. I oved the book Seeing how short this book was, I wondered how the author could pull off the superhero angle in such short time. The book flashed by, but the story turned out well rounded.

The setting isn't a stretch from most other superhero, YA novels. A group of teens with varying powers work for an agency and train to defeat some evildoers. Compared to other books in this genre, I found the quick pace and short word count refreshing. It is worth the time to read, but don't expect anything revolutionary. I fo Seeing how short this book was, I wondered how the author could pull off the superhero angle in such short time. I found the pacing in this book to whisk me through the pages, with constant action.
This bulk of this book is plot, and lacks substance, but just dangling what would happen next made the novel exciting. I also had to whip out my dictionary on more than one occasion, which is something that young adult books have never troubled me with. Besides a few flourishes, the verbiage in this book is standard fair. There are many short sentences and little description.
Aliens aren't always a bad thing, if they have a central role in a book. However, the addition of E. By that, I mean that even though the Pitt concocts the world of the book, aliens just seem like too much of a stretch.
In the book, they aren't even the primary enemy and they look exactly like humans. Whether this was done to back up plots for further installments in the series, I don't know, but they did not belong in this book. The characters are somewhat stereotypical and don't undergo much development, but they each played their roles fine. The superpowers in the book were not all that original, with Axel being the last airbender, Brodie being the reincarnation of Bruce Lee, Dan being half Magneto half Jedi, Chad being the offspring of Mr.
Freeze and the Human Torch and finally Ebony, being the better version of Zan from the wonder twins. They all share the common weakness of special guns that impair their powers. As far as that aspect goes, superpowers usually defining the book in the superhero genre, the powers weren't bad.
Some of the characters seem like they are overpowered, namely Dan who could use Jedi mind tricks so long as they didn't advance the plot.

Bottom line: It isn't anything new, but it is a quick, entertaining read. May pick up the sequels eventually, but doubt I will reread this one. First of a five-book so far series, this one is available for free an Amazon as a gateway into the series. If you like it, pick up the rest; if not, the only thing you lose is time reading a pretty good superpower story. A Young Adult story centered around a male protagonist, but following the present trend in YA - two possible love interests both very nice girls - you hope he winds ups with both at different parts of the story.

All five of the teenage superpowered people have had their memor First of a five-book so far series, this one is available for free an Amazon as a gateway into the series. All five of the teenage superpowered people have had their memories destroyed in the process which gave them their powers. The process implemented by a shadowy alien-run Agency to create weapons against other alien-run organizations - and the author gives you no idea if the Agency or the Organizations are on the side of humanity.
Everyone has an agenda for the teenagers, including their personal ones survival, learning about their families lost with their memory wipe, and the need for independence. Solid writing. Good build of power skill sets. Love how the main character discovers his power and decides to use it for the first time. Dan and Axel's powers are really cool - nicely limited and unlimited at the same time.
Would have liked a little more introspection Also would have liked to see a little more of the interaction of powers be part of solving some of the dangers instead of focusing on the main character's powers - but that is me - I like team solving. Overall plenty of action, some cool superpowers, aliens, superheros, secret agencies.
Lots to enjoy. As has the issue of who these teenagers could trust and so on. Plus there were some aspects which made it different from other similar stories. One aspect is the characters having no memory of their previous lives for instance. While giving teenagers super powers does raise some moral grey areas, especially with the amnesia they all share in terms of consent, for the most part this book is very black and white. There are certain bad guys who are just that, bad guys. However there are some shades of grey, especially in the Agency that created the super powered teens and in terms of some of the teens themselves.
This black and white is aided by most of the characters being two dimensional in character, especially the villains. Very few characters are overly fleshed out. And yet this is one of those books that does not need overly deep characters. The plot itself is not overly deep. And in that regard the book is a success.
