Description

It's not easy for a young gay artist like Jordan Carson to grow up in Jefferson, Wisconsin, where all anyone seems to care about in middle school and high school are the sports teams. But Jordan was lucky. He met Owen Nelson in the second grade, and they've been BFFs ever since. Owen is a big, beautiful blond and their school's champion wrestler. No one messes with Owen, or with anyone close to him, and he bucks popular opinion by keeping Jordan as his wingman even after Jordan comes out at school.

Their friendship survives, but Jordan's worst enemy may be himself: he can't seem to help the fact that he is head-over-heels in love with a hopeless case - his straight friend, Owen. Owen won't let anything take Jordan's friendship away, but he never counted on Jordan running off to find a life of his own. Owen will have to face the nature of their relationship if he's to win Jordan back.

Cute story. Lovable characters

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is a quick and sweet story. It borders on young adult to new adult.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Jordan and Owen, both!

What does Tristan Wright bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice was perfect for the age of the guys.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it is short enough to listen to

Any additional comments?

This is my first book narrated by Tristan Wright. He was great, except it his voice did not waver at all between characters. His switch in POV was difficult at times. He would state Owen or Jordan's name, and if you were not listening closely, you could miss it. He was seamless in his transition which made it difficult to figure out if he was still reading or switching between characters. His voice was perfect for this age group and I would give him a "try" again.

Great YA story

Loved this story. Not as much as Blame It On The Mistletoe but it's a close second. I highly recommend.

Short and sweet

If you could sum up Superhero in three words, what would they be?

Charming and adorable.

What other book might you compare Superhero to and why?

Rainbow High, and not just for the obvious high school affiliation, but for the coming of age story told so well in both.

Any additional comments?

This is my first audio book with Tristan Wright as narrator and he is spectacular! I will be looking (and hoping) for him as narrator in all my future audiobooks.

Completely Adorable!

Totally adorable. And the narrator, Tristan Wright, was perfect for this one. I would have loved the story to continue and include their first few years at college - esp after the epilogue got me all curious - but it was very, very enjoyable.

Very sweet coming of age story

I live in Wisconsin and went to the UW. Granted, I'm not of the generation portrayed in this story and it is a work of fiction, but I'm not sure this could happen even today. It's getting better, but acceptance of LGBTQ students outside of the larger cities in this state is pretty rare. I felt there should have been at least a little bit more push back from peer groups to give it more verisimilitude. That said, it was a truly sweet story of love and acceptance. It made me wish this was what it is like to come out in high school today. Hopefully it will be true"r" someday.

Story adorable, narration painful

The narrator is fine - it's the complete lack of editing that is just jarring. No pauses between chapter titles, POV shifts, sections. Three times lines were repeated with different tones, meaning they were different takes and both were included. It's a sloppy audiobook.

That said, the story is really sweet and charming and I enjoyed it a lot. Too bad about the crappy audio editing.

Perfectly Predictable

Geeky gay guy falls for his straight jock best friend, who turns out to be secretly gay and gradually accepts that truth, and then falls into bed and then supergay love with the geeky gay friend. Ok? This tale was well written, though. Short and sweet, not overwrought, no eye-rolling melodrama or out of the blue character quirks, and a relatively realistic happy ending. This is a good story for a closeted young jock who feels helpless and hopeless about reconciling negative stereotypes and his masculine self-image. Or, a young twink who fantasizes about being taken by the macho school hero with a heart of gold!

Read the book instead.

I read Superhero when it first came out, and it remains an all time favorite I re-read. I decided to try the audio and wish I hadn't. All he did was "read" the book. He didn't bring the story or bring the characters to life. Highly recommend the book, can't recommed the audio.
5 Stars for the story.
1 Star for the narration.
6 ÷ 2= 3 Stars.

so-so narration

I enjoyed this book but the narration could have been a little bit better
I felt like he spoke too fast . I did enjoy the fact that the sex for age appropriate. Great coming of age story.
