My Review: 

Grady Whill and the Templeton Codex: A Superhero High School Adventure is another fun and adventurous book written by the talented author Carole P Roman. It was entertaining getting to know the main character Grady Whill and his friends. I loved his narration of this story and enjoyed his humor sprinkled throughout the book. This middle grade fiction has a lot of adventure and action, along with some lessons to be learned that so many of us could learn from or be reminded of. It was great taking this plot twisting journey with Grady and the other characters for a few hours and had no problem at all having it all read in one day. 

I am giving Grady Whill and the Templeton Codex: A Superhero High School Adventure a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who are between the ages of nine and fourteen and enjoy reading about superheroes. I can not wait to hand my copy of the book over to my thirteen year old daughter to see what she thinks of it and see if she loves it as much as me. I will most definitely be looking for more books like this one from Carole P Roman in the near future. 

I received a paperback copy of Grady Whill and the Templeton Codex: A Superhero High School Adventure from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
