This is not an ordinary love story, and Sam Holloway is not your typical hero. But he is a hero...
Kick-Ass meets Amelie in this funny, charming, and very moving novel. Perfect for fans of The Rosie Project, The Keeper of Lost Things, and The Universe Versus Alex Woods.
Sam is 26 years old, and ever since 'The Incident', he's lost faith in the world. There's only one thing that makes him feel alive these days - and keeps his loneliness at bay.
Three nights a week, Sam dons his carefully constructed superhero costume, and patrols the streets of his community.
When Sam is a superhero, he feels invincible. But his unlikely heroics are getting him into some sticky, and increasingly dangerous situations.
And when a girl comes into his life, it throws his careful routines into chaos.
Sam needs to decide whether he can be brave enough to take off the mask, and take a chance on love.
This is a heart-breaking story about grief, loss and loneliness. But it's also a heart-warming story about love, and the great power of kindness.
Rhys Thomas lives in Cardiff with his long-term girlfriend and two cats, Henry VIII and Sheldon Tilllikum Cooper.
