Get ready for some crazy misadventures with Max
Max Crumbly has a superpower. Well, kind of—but the ability to smell pizza from a block away doesn't exactly come in handy against his bullies as much as flying or invisibility might.
The heroes from Max's comics—with their speed and strength and bravery—are better suited to stand up to Doug, the mean kid who is determined to make life difficult for everyone around him. But the heroes from Max's comics aren't here to save the day—only Max is.
Max takes a page out of his heroes' books and vows to stand up to all the bullies at South Ridge Middle School—no matter how many times he gets stuffed into a locker along the way. After all, being brave doesn't mean you're not scared. It just means that, even when you're terrified, you charge on anyway.
From Rachel Renée Russell, the author of the bestselling Dork Diaries series, The Misadventures of Max Crumbly: Locker Hero is just as funny, silly and seriously full of heart as you'd hope. Heroes are everywhere if you know where to look—and Max is an inspo to us all.
