    A review copy was sent to me by the author himself in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my opinion.What sets this book apart from other superhero books is the kind of superpowers Chewy Noh has. I don't know why he, in the first place, chose the superpower to ace every kinds of test while I would want acquire a superpower that can make me manipulate minds (that can lead to world domination, maybe? *evil smile*)I love how this ...

    This book reminds me too much of school. I fucking hated school. All that reading and writing, and paying attention in class... Fuck that shit. I've got better things to do, goddamnit.Chewy – what a silly fucking name. At first, I thought maybe the author wasn't aware of the most famous 'Chewy'. But then a bully in this story made the comment "So your mother named you after a Wookie? Nice."But this Chewy is nothing like a Wookie. He's a tiny li...

    This review was originally published on my blog: Love thy Shelf!Provided by author in exchange for an honest review.This book has been a surprise. If I was younger, it would definitely be a solid 4 but right now, for me, it was a 3.5 — so I rounded up. It took a bit of time for me to get used to and to get me into the right frame of mind. It had an interesting plot to it and it was a fairly easy read. You learn a little bit of Korean culture, ...

But his powers are a wonderful advantage, especially in America. Being the new kid is bad enough and easily succumbs to the bully's of the school. Little do they know that he has powers and his life takes a strange turn when he discovers secrets of not only his own family, the mu-dan...
