Finished Drew Hayes Super Powereds Year Two which was just as good as Year One.
"Despite having their secret revealed, the residents of Melbrook Hall return to Lander University for another year in the Hero Certification Program. Good thing the focus of this year is teamwork, because with their origins known they’ll have to lean on each other more than ever.
Now finally sophomores, their curriculum expands, allowing them to train in the majors that Heroes specialize in. The new classes will test their minds, bodies, and determination in ways never anticipated. In a year filled with the unveiling of secrets, unexpected entanglements, and, of course, super-powered battles, who will be left standing is anyone’s guess. Because if all that weren’t enough, more light is being shed on last year’s kidnapping attempt, and the results point at something far bigger than mere rogue educators."
Our main characters are in Year 2 of college and their Hero Certification program. This year for the kids it is all about team work while trying to preserve their spot to make it through to the fourth year. Their secret as powereds is exposed and they have to work doubly hard to preserve friendships and ignore those who don't think they are good enough.
I think I'm most surprised by Hershel and Roy. Glad Hershel approached Dad and found out Hershel needs to work out and get himself into shape in order for Roy to progress. Are these two going to combine into one person one of these days. It's sad they can't forgive their father and have a relationship but he did abandon them for a different lifestyle. I'm not surprised about Nick but I do think he'll be back for Year 3. I know Nick does things for all the right reasons, but I think his lack of trust in his team mates, his refusing to reveal his true self most of the time, contributes to some of their problems. But he is a teenager? Or is he just posing as one? Never quite sure about that.
Disappointed in Camille hiding her true abilities from Vince. How will he feel when he does find out? Vince is way too forgiving of Rich and Nick. I would probably feel betrayed by their actions and take longer to get over them. Alice and Mary are learning to be team players, plus learning how to use their abilities. The rest of the sub characters and the adults all have something to hide, some more than others, which feeds into not only the lessons, but their lives. Looking forward to Year 3.
