Waiting on Wednesday - Hero

This is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this post I talk about books yet to be released that I'm excited about OR already published book's I've seen that I'm really wanting to read. I also like to try and find books other bloggers aren't sharing so that more books are shared!
This week I'm waiting on:
 
Hero by Mike Lupica
Release Date: November 9, 2010
 
Mike Lupica has been known for his sports books.  I've had many many boys read his books and really enjoy them.  This one seems to be a step away from that.  I'm curious to see how well it goes over.
 
From Goodreads
Fourteen-year-old Billy Harriman can feel the changes. The sharpening of his senses. The incredible strength. The speed, as though he can textmessage himself across miles. The confidence and the strange need to patrol Central Park at night. His dad had been a hero, a savior to America and a confidante of the president. Then he died, and the changes began in Billy. What Billy never knew was that his father was no ordinary man-he was a superhero, battling the world's evil. This is a battle that has been waged for generations and that knows no boundaries. And now it's Billy's turn to take on the fight. It's Billy's turn to become a hero.
So those of you that have read Mike Lupica - what do you think?????

Nice choice! I picked up an ARC of Hero at BEA, but haven't had a chance to start reading it yet.

My Teaser is here.
