Publisher: Tantrum Books/Month9Books

Alexander Graham Ptuiac, the son of an inventor, dreams of playing football. But his dreams are thwarted by his lack of athleticism and overall lanky build. Like any kid with a dream, Alex tries out anyway, just in case. If nothing else, maybe he can win the role of water boy. So when Alex suddenly manifests superhuman powers during football tryouts, Alex can’t believe his good luck. He’s got game! But his new abilities can get him kicked off the team; unless Alex can keep it a secret long enough to find out how the heck he got this way. Enter Dex, a diminutive classmate who can somehow jump as high as ten feet in the air. Now, Alex isn’t the only one at school with a secret. Except, the boys have caught the attention of some pretty nefarious adults, intent on making sure neither Alex nor Dex make it through the season.The only thing stranger than Alexander Graham Ptuiac, accidental quarterback, is the shocking truth about himself and his parents. When truth is stranger than fiction and adults are out to get you, there’s only one thing to do. Play ball!

The Impossible Pitcher (Weirdo Academy #2)

by Charles Curtis

Publication Date: November 7, 2017

Publisher: Tantrum Books/Month9Books

Alex and Dex are local heroes. Suddenly, everyone wants to be friends with Alex, Dex and Sophi.

But someone more powerful than any of them lurks in the background, keeping a close watch until it’s time to swoop in and capture them. Still, Alex tries to maintain some semblance of normalcy — in the offseason, he wants to play baseball. As Alex becomes a formidable pitcher, his powers grow and so does his obsession with controlling them.

With Alex finding less and less time for Dex and Sophi, Dex discovers his cat-like abilities start to disappear soon after he starts spending time with a girl.

As the friends struggle to maintain their friendships, that mysterious someone gets closer and closer. Can the three friends find their way back to one another before it’s too late? Or will middle school tear them apart for good?

Why You’ll Love This Book

I always thought Weirdo Academy had something for everybody. And yeah, I know I’m biased — I’m the author! But let’s review why you’ll agree:

  1. The focus is on a group of middle school kids who suddenly discover they have special powers. That means if you love all things comic books in print, TV and movies, you’ll definitely love the book.
  2. The hero at the center of both The Accidental Quarterback and The Impossible Pitcher is Alex Ptuiac, who is obsessed with sports. As you might have guessed from the book titles, he dreams of playing football and later gets into baseball. This series is for sports nuts, too.
  3. There’s also a coming-of-age thread throughout both books – life as the new kid at school, the added responsibilities and pressures that come with being a 7th grader, and the struggle to fit in, find friends and avoid bullying.
  4. Do you like action? Good, because there are so many scenes filled with heart-pounding action, heightened drama and some out-of-this-world technology provided by Alex’s dad, a scientist and inventor.
  5. I didn’t mention romance yet! Alex has his first crush, and it just happens to be on an eclectic girl who might share something very peculiar in common with him …
  6. Add in a dash of mystery – Where did Alex and others in the book get their powers from? Who are the evil forces chasing after Alex and his family?

There you have it! Something for everybody. Enjoy!
