About This Book:

Packed with superheroes, supervillains, and epic showdowns between good and evil, The Unforgettable Logan Foster from debut author Shawn Peter shows that sometimes being a hero is just about being yourself.

Logan Foster has pretty much given up on the idea of ever being adopted. It could have something to with his awkward manner, his photographic memory, or his affection for reciting curious facts, but whatever the cause, Logan and his “PP’s” (prospective parents) have never clicked.

Then everything changes when Gil and Margie arrive. Although they aren’t exactly perfect themselves—Gil has the punniest sense of humor and Margie’s cooking would have anyone running for the hills—they genuinely seem to care.

But it doesn’t take Logan long to notice some very odd things about them. They are out at all hours, they never seem to eat, and there’s a part of the house that is protected by some pretty elaborate security.

No matter what Logan could have imagined, nothing prepared him for the truth: His PP’s are actually superheroes, and they’re being hunted down by dastardly forces. Logan’s found himself caught in the middle in a massive battle and the very fate of the world may hang in the balance. Will Logan be able to find a way to save the day and his new family?

Family is not easily forgotten
 
What I Loved: Logan is not good in social situations, isn’t used to having family or friends, or people who know how to handle his eidetic memory. His blunt approach to stating his thoughts and feelings led to some fairly humorous interactions along the way. He is quick to realize his new foster parents are hiding something and his past experiences make him quick to think it is because they are close to rejecting him.
All that changes quickly once he learns that his foster parents have superpowers. I thought it was clever that the rationale behind comic books was so that superheroes accidentally seen by civilians will just think they are people cosplaying. When the villain Seismyxer kidnaps his potential parents, it is up to Logan and his new friend Elena to try and save them.
What Left Me Wanting More: I am looking forward to the sequels of this series. The characters had much heart and humor. The book is written as Logan writing a letter to an unknown brother or sister. It will be interesting to see if he ever learns how he came to be at the orphanage.
Final Verdict: Logan’s smarts have always been misunderstood and set him apart from everyone else at the orphanage. With his new potential parents, Margie and Gil, he finally experiences the love of a family. It was a very humorous story and I enjoyed the heartwarming aspects of him finally finding people who value all of him.
