BOOK PREVIEW:

SYNOPSIS:

My name is Adam Butters. I live on planet Earth, I like eating spaghetti hoops and I've decided I'm going to be a SUPERHERO.

Everyone loves superheroes, they solve problems and make people happy, and that's good because my mum needs cheering up. Also, I've found out that before I was adopted my real mum called me ACE. So now I've just got to prove to the world that's what I am. One mission at a time...

Hilarious, heart-warming and heart-breaking in equal measure, this is a story about the power in all of us to be extraordinary.
