A funny and frank superhero story set in the world of Othergirl.
Joseph ‘Wilco’ Wilkes is one of life’s losers – he’s picked on, pushed around, and bullied by the rugby boys at the posh private school he attends on a scholarship. But his life is about to change: Wilco learns he can move things with his mind. Will this be his chance to play the hero, get the girl and finally stand up for himself? Or are things just going to come crashing down around his head? Becoming a proper hero will be quite the leap of faith...

Nicole is a writer from North London. Over the years she’s had lots of different jobs, including patrolling the Natural History Museum, presenting the traffic news on the radio, and demonstrating toys in Hamleys. Finally, she decided to focus on her passion for stories, and completed a Masters in Creative Writing at Birkbeck College whilst working as a children’s bookseller. Among her other interests are comic books, nineties cartoon theme tunes, and cute pictures of animals wearing funny outfits.

"There is no superhero more endearing than Wonderboy." —Sun

"A sharply-observed comedy of teen life, with a serious undertone. Amongst the comic-book action Burstein shows what heroism - the kind that calls for real courage – really is, and reminds readers that heroes and villains too are often those we least expect them to be." —

"Wonderboy offers . . . a plot that throws up more than a few surprising twists." —Irish Times

"Fast-moving and very entertaining comedy." —Bookseller, Bookseller's Choice

"Witty, enjoyable and fast-moving." —Children's Books Ireland
