Rate this:
Meet Liam Mckenzie, a lonely twelve-year-old boy whose alter ego is the Masked Avenger, a superhero with powers so potent, so vast, not even he can fully comprehend their extent. Dressed in his superhero outfit and accompanied by his best friend, Richie the Powerbeagle, the Masked Avenger roams his neighbourhood late at night fixing sprinklers and putting away forgotten rubbish bins. But all is not well on the quiet street. The Masked Avenger is concerned about Joan, a woman who lives down the end of the street and weighed down by her troubles. The Masked Avenger believes the Amber Amulet can save Joan, and over a secret mission late one evening, they meet face-to-face, and an extraordinary friendship is formed. Craig Silvey, best-selling author of Jasper Jones and Rhubarb, has created a new generation of superhero in this stunning and hilarious coming of age story, filled with pathos and humour.
