My Hero Academia by Kohei Horikoshi - ADVISABLE

My Hero Academia (Volume 1) by Kohei Horikoshi, 189 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL. VIZ Media, 2020. $9.

Language: PG (15 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG



In a futuristic time when having superpowers is the new normal, everyone wants to be a professional superhero, including 14yo Midoriya. Unfortunately, Midoriya is abnormal, having been born without supernatural abilities. Even that fact is not going to keep him from trying, though -- Midoriya can still be a hero, right?

I love that Midoriya never gives up. He has a goal, and he’s determined to make it happen despite all the discouragement and mocking he gets for it. Midoriya simply chooses to be good, and that’s what makes him the superhero he wants to be. We can all be heroes and fulfill our dreams if we can adopt Midoriya’s attitude. I find this story both inspiring and fun to read -- can’t wait to read volume two!
