Every super hero gets his powers from somewhere. The young hero of this
book, Rocco, thinks his abilities come from his shock of red hair, and
the longer it gets, the stronger he becomes. He even has a posse of
super friends with wild hair of their own. Our hero is
unstoppable–until the day he’s dragged to the super evil villain’s lair
and robbed of his powers. How will he face his friends? Will he ever
regain his super hero-ness? A girl who has been watching all along
offers the gang a chance to save the day and get their groove back.
