The last thing in the world Thom Creed wants is to add to his fatherís pain, so he keeps secrets. Like that he has special powers. And that heís been asked to join the League ? the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. But the most painful secret of all is one Thom can barely face himself: heís gay.

But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, who can control fire but not her anger; Typhoid Larry, who can make anyone sick with his touch; and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide; but they will have to learn to trust one another when they uncover a deadly conspiracy within the League.

To survive, Thom will face challenges he never imagined. To find happiness, heíll have to come to terms with his fatherís past and discover the kind of hero he really wants to be.

Perry Moore grew up in Virginia. His father, a Vietnam veteran, inspired the character of Hal Creed. Perry is the Executive Producer of The Chronicles of Narnia, and his book about the making of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was a New York Times bestseller. With his partner, Hunter Hill, Perry wrote and directed his first feature film, Lake City, starring Sissy Spacek.

This is Perry's first novel. He lives in New York City.
