In the biblical stories, Samson had great strength. The prophet Elijah outran a chariot.
Today we would call these superpowers.
In LAUNCH, a group of teens are given mysterious new abilities. They find themselves invited to the Launch Conference hosted by tech genius and billionaire Simon Mazor, a man with his own special abilities.

Demarcus Bartlett and Lily Beausoliel come from different worlds. When they meet at the conference, it becomes apparent they were invited for a reason. Demarcus can outrun cars. Lights behave strangely around Lily.

The question is, what will they do with their gifts?

This superhero tale is a lot of fun, with likeable characters, lots of action, and a thread of faith that complements but doesn't overwhelm the story. It raises interesting questions of what a person should do when given extraordinary gifts and makes you care about the characters and want them to choose well. This is the first in a series, and the story wraps up but leaves plenty open for exciting sequels. A great read for families and teens!
