My name is Adam Butters. I live on planet Earth, I like eating spaghetti hoops and I've decided I'm going to be a SUPERHERO.
Everyone loves superheroes, they solve problems and make people happy, and that's good because my mum needs cheering up. Also, I've found out that before I was adopted my real mum called me ACE. So now I've just got to prove to the world that's what I am. One mission at a time...
Hilarious, heart-warming and heart-breaking in equal measure, this is a story about the power in all of us to be extraordinary.

Adam is a normal eleven year-old boy. He likes spaghetti hoops and always wear a bobble hat. He’s also adopted but he never thought about his real parents; he wouldn’t want to be anywhere else on the planet than with the parents he already has. But when his teacher comes up with the idea of a family tree project everything changes.
This great story is sometimes happy, sometimes funny and some parts nearly made me cry. Lara Williamson has done a brilliant job with this book; the characters seemed to come to life even though I knew they were fictional. My favourite part was when Adam and his friend had to travel down the street in a wheelie bin!
This is definitely a must read for 9-12 year olds. I’m going to tell Alex, one of my brothers, that he should read this book next. I’ve also read A Boy Called Hope by Lara Williamson and I would recommend that one too.
