Descrizione

From the renowned author/illustrator of the Popularity Papers series, Amy Ignatow, comes the first installment in a series about a diverse crew of middle school kids who develop very limited superhero powers after a strange accident and manage to become unlikely friends on the adventure of a lifetime.

When a sweet nerd, an artsy cartoonist, a social outcast, and the most popular girl in school are involved in a mysterious bus accident, this seemingly random group of kids starts to notice some very strange abilities they did not have before. Artsy Martina can change her eye color. Nerdy Nick can teleport . . . four inches to the left. Outcast Farshad develops super strength, but only in his thumbs. And Cookie, the It Girl of school’s most popular clique, has suddenly developed the ability to read minds . . . when those minds are thinking about directions. They are oddly mighty—especially together.

This group—who would never hang out under normal circumstances—must now combine all of their strengths to figure out what happened during the bus accident. With alternating narratives from each of the heroes, featuring bold female superheroes and a multicultural cast, The Mighty Odds is The Breakfast Club for a new generation.

    This is a fast-paced fantasy/action book. Told through the eyes of Nick Gross, a "nerd", the story takes us through the adventures of six fifth graders and their experience of gaining superpowers after a bus accident. The graphic novel elements of the story add much to the readers' understandings of the action. The narrative sections are short and full of action, fantasy and adventure. Readers will recognize some of the stereotypes represented in the book, as well as the repercussions of these stereotypes.This book will appear to middle school readers, especially males, who enjoy fantasy. This book will appeal to fans of graphic novels. I would recommend this to readers who like fast-moving, action filled books of the fantasy genre. This book will appeal to middle school readers who enjoy reading about cliques and stereotypes they may recognize through their own experiences.

    A funny book and I like the premise of kids with mediocre powers. I didn't like how much swearing there was in a book about 12 year olds written for twelve year olds. Also it is a series but one of those series that feel more like a regular book chopped into pieces. Great for kids who are intimidated by thick books. Annoying for a person who would like to read a complete story.

    I liked how it was super powers, and I can't wait to see what happens next!

    Amy Ignatow - of Popularity Papers fame - is back with a brand new crew in The Mighty Odds. The story begins like many sixth grade tales, on a field trip. The characters are both unique and familiar - a contemporary Breakfast Club sans detention - abounding in diversity and personality. The class is just large enough to require two buses, a large and a small. One thing leads to another and a popular girl and a small group of "outcasts" end up with a single teacher on the small bus on the way home from a field trip. When the weather gets rough, the small bus violently crashes and those involved find that they now have very peculiar super powers. Very. Peculiar. Ignatow does a phenomenal job in this first book introducing her readers to the highly amusing cast of characters. The diversity is refreshing and issues are handled deftly and in a way that should make perfect sense to middle grade readers and adult alike. The issues raised are very important but don't feel heavy handed at all, which is a note difficult to hit. The pace is quite fast, making for an easy and enjoyable read. Ignatow's signature illustrations supplement the text and look just like many a sixth grader's notebook. The only glaring issue with the book is a very abrupt ending, but it's clear the author is setting the scene for many more stories, so it's likely that readers will ultimately forgive the cliff at the end of this first story. Here's hoping for much more from The Might Odds!
