Welcome to Superhero School! Join Oliver, Jess, and all their friends on a mission to destroy the power-hungry, evil villains of Vork. From subterranean sewers to lush jungle, from dinosaurs to dragons, our heroes will be pushed to their limits in ways they’d never imagined. Will their collective Powers—Flight, Morphing, Invisibility, Mind Reading, and more—be enough for them to overcome the malevolence of Vork? Or will they stumble over their own doubts and painful histories?
This action-packed journey of friendship, hardship, and humor will take our heroes to thrilling new heights and a deeper understanding of their own place in the world. But will that be enough—or will Vork always be one step ahead?
Graceanne “Gracie” Dix is a high school author.
She has been writing since she could hold a pencil.
When Gracie isn’t writing, she can be found singing, creating art, in the theatre, volunteering, or playing tennis. She loves to travel and is a loyal friend. Gracie lives in Dallas, Texas with her parents, Richard and Jennifer, her brother, Nate, whenever he is home from college, and her beloved dogs, Snowball and Sandcastle “Sandy.”
I love discovering new authors, especially those who are young and who I can watch their writing develop over time. After reading Welcome to Superhero School, I think I have another new author to watch: Gracie Dix.
In Welcome to Superhero School, Dix has created a whole new world filled with – you guessed it – young superheroes. The characters are well crafted and fun to get to know as they learn more about their powers and get to put them to work. The storyline is exciting and fast-paced so even the most reluctant readers will want to keep turning the pages to see what happens next.
As an adult reading this middle grade/young adult book, I especially enjoyed the themes of friendship, perseverance and cooperation that appear throughout. I speak to my Girl Scout Troop about these topics on a regular basis and could see this book becoming a fun summer reading troop project. (Hey Gracie, want to make a fun patch with us??)
I look forward to reading more in this series and seeing how the characters, and the author’s writing mature over time. Gracie Dix and The Vork Chronicles have a lot of potential!
