On February 29th, at 4:23 p.m., everyone in the Bailey family over the age of twelve gets a superpower.

No one knows why, and no one questions it. All the Baileys know is that it’s their duty to protect the world from those evil, supervillainous Johnsons. *shakes fists*

Today, Rafter Bailey and his brother Benny are finally going to get their superpowers. Benny wants to be a speedy, and Rafter hopes he gets his grandpa’s superstrength so he can save the day just like him.

But when their powers arrive, they are—well—duds. Rafter can light matches on polyester, and Benny can turn his innie belly button into an outie.

How is Rafter supposed to defeat his algebra class nemesis, Juanita Johnson, now? And worse still, what if everything Rafter thought he knew about superheroes turns out to be a lie?

Rafter may not have an awesome power, but with the help of his wits and an unexpected friend, he could just be almost super.
