"Michael Lesley's upbeat narration captures all the whimsy, humor, and heart of this YA superhero romp...This sweet queer coming-of-age story will please listeners looking for something fun, surprising, and affirming." -- AudioFile Magazine An Indie Next Pick! Some people are extraordinary. Some are just extra. TJ Klune's YA debut, The Extraordinaries, is a queer coming-of-age story about a fanboy with ADHD and the heroes he loves. Nick Bell? Not extraordinary. But being the most popular fanfiction writer in the Extraordinaries fandom is a superpower, right? After a chance encounter with Shadow Star, Nova City’s mightiest hero (and Nick’s biggest crush), Nick sets out to make himself extraordinary. And he’ll do it with or without the reluctant help of Seth Gray, Nick's best friend (and maybe the love of his life). Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl meets Marissa Meyer's Renegades in TJ Klune's YA debut. A Macmillan Audio production from Tor Teen

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Klune plays with superhero genre tropes and fan-fiction clichés with the skill of a true fan—completely aware of their ridiculousness but in love with them anyway. Hilarious, sweet, and absolutely super!” Kirkus Reviews
“Nick’s ADHD and almost comical optimism combine to make a charming and entertaining hero…There’s plenty in this lighthearted, superhero-interested teen dramedy for kids who feel like they’re sometimes on the outside, including the positive representation of a teen with ADH.” Publishers Weekly
“Michael Lesley’s upbeat narration captures all the whimsy, humor, and heart of this YA superhero romp…Lesley expertly voices all of Nick’s teenage angst and does an expert job with the secondary characters. Nick’s father is gruff and warm; his ex-boyfriend, Owen, is a bit haughty; and the Extraordinaries have powerful larger-than-life voices. This sweet queer coming-of-age story will please listeners looking for something fun, surprising, and affirming.” AudioFile
