by Marcus Emerson
Roaring Books, April 2018; 2019; 2020
All Ben Braver wanted was to wrap up his summer with awesome TV shows and his favorite candy. But then some kid screamed for help, and, like his favorite comic book heroes, Ben had to go save the day, or try to, which leads him to a secret school where kids with super abilities learn to control their powers. Ben’s never had any powers, but he’s always wanted to be something special. And when he’s offered a spot at the school, he realizes he has a chance to make his dreams come true. BEN BRAVER is the first book in a hilarious adventure series about super powers, unbelievable inventions, and the greatness that lies within any middle schooler who dreams big.
Marcus Emerson is the author of “The Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja” Series, a phenomenal self-published success, published in 10 countries. THE SUPER LIFE OF BEN BRAVER will be his first chapter book series launched by a traditional publisher in the US.
