 About the Book 

There is no such thing as the impossible dream.Living in Atlanta in 1967, Brad Jones is an average teenager with a vivid imagination and a unique way of seeing the world through his flights of fancy and dreams of heroic deeds. During the summer before his senior year, he and three friends decide to prove that superheroes dont need special powers, fancy weapons, futuristic vehicles, or skin tight costumes.All they really need is great press.Calling themselves the Bowmen, they carefully craft a plan to make one late-night appearance to halt a minor crime and phone it in to the local newspaper. All they expect to get is a news article about a mysterious band of masked vigilantes. What they didnt expect was to become seduced by the excitement of pretending to be superheroes.Their intended short-lived hoax begins to take on a life of its own as they continue their escapades, with all their carefully laid plans frequently going awry and leading to hilarious predicaments and escalating dangers. And when they are caught in a shocking, real-life situation which forces them to find the courage they never knew they possessed, they will learn that the heart of a superhero can live inside anyone - even lanky teenagers with no superpowers and very little common sense.
