High school student Gracie Dix’s debut adventure novel, Welcome to Superhero School released April 28, 2020. The book is the first in a series called The Vork Chronicles which follows a group of teenage friends learning to control their unique superhero-like abilities. Siblings Oliver and Jess set off with their friends on a mission to destroy the power-hungry, evil villains of Vork, sending them from subterranean sewers to lush jungles as they encounter everything from dinosaurs to dragons. Gracie never thought an essay for a literary contest would turn into the first book in a series called The Vork Chronicles. She also never thought she’d be launching that book during a global pandemic. Nevertheless, Gracie is showing kids and teens everywhere that pressing on during hard times is exactly what makes us real-life superheroes.

My daughter is 11 and I’ve given this toy to many of her friends at their birthday parties. It’s a game that takes a bit of thinking. You need to build a path through the towers so your marble can get to the end. This game is not just great for teenagers, our whole family loves it. You can start with easy challenges and work your way up to expert level. There are 60 challenges in total so you don’t get sick of it quickly. My husband and I found ourselves playing it when the kids weren’t there!
