Anger (Hero High, #2)Anger by Mina Chara
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Anger (Hero High book 2) by Mina Chara is a 3.5 star read.
Friday Fitzsimmons is still trying to figure her way around Hero High and the camera’s, the new Dr Dangerous is hell bent on finding his place as a villain and making sure Friday is in the middle of his plans. Making new friends along the way Friday is trying to stop her anxiety worries getting in the way of her time at hero high.
There was a little more excitement in this book but it still fell a little flat for me, but when I picked up the book I didn’t put it down until I was finished.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the series. We again are following along with a Friday Fitzsimmons on her life at Hero High. We get to see some old characters in here that we met in book 1. Friday is moving along with her Hero job and now she has runs across a couple syringes. She is trying to find out where they came from and who is using them. Meanwhile she is working with her mentor to improve her skills.

This is enjoyable and a fun read. Poor Friday gets into all kinds of trouble while on her quest.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Hero High series from Mina Chara and I would highly recommend that you read the first book in the series before you start with this one. This book does pick right up where we left off with book one and the characters continue on through as well as grow as you read. This is a young adult book so written towards that genre and I rather enjoyed it still. This series packs a punch and gives you lots of different story tidbits to please just about any reader. Everything from adventure, action, drama, mystery and suspense is thrown in to keep you on the edge of your seat reading to find out if the characters will make it through whatever task they are plagued with at the time. I look forward to seeing where the story will go next in the next book to come.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read from this author and I am now hooked. This is the first book from the Hero High series and what a perfect start to a series. I was excited when I started this book. I stopped everything and started to read it immediately. I could not put this book down until the end. These characters hooked me into their story and I can’t wait to read more.

Friday is like your normal seventeen year old. She had friends and family but when her dad finds out she has a super power he ships her to a special school. Friday is shipped to the number one hero school, Hero High. She is now in a more structured environment that she doesn’t like. Friday also has to be filmed everyday but at least she has her best friend by her side. She is surprised when she finds out what it takes to be a superhero. Friday doesn’t have the time because this man that is on fire is making trouble and Friday needs to find out why. Will Friday fit into her new school or will she be the outcast?

Anger by Mina Chara
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Anger is the second book in the Hero High series by Mina Chara. This is a Young Adult fantasy adventure story set in a near future world, Icon City. This book follows on from book one, picking up where book one ended. So, if you haven’t read the first book, I highly recommend that you do, so you have all the information you need to enjoy this book fully.
Friday knows she’s being watched, but she needs answers and is trying to figure everything out. She has to be careful and not let on what she’s doing- because she really doesn’t know who she can trust- especially Hero Channel. There is a lot for her to keep track of, and a lot to try and piece together. She’ll have to trust herself and be strong to get through.
A great instalment in the series- an interesting little adventure, with mystery, drama, an evil villain, and more. So, if you love young adult fantasy, with mystery, adventure, and ‘superhero’ types- then you will definitely want to add this to your collection.

Thank you, Mina Chara!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This novel by Mina Chara was really good. Today, Superheroes are a really big deal. Maybe they have always been a big deal, just ask any young boy with a comic book collection. What made this book interesting was the fact that it is a book about superheroes just starting out. They are all young and new to their superhero attributes. Mina Chara included in her story some adventure and suspens which made for a very interesting read. I look forward to continuing the adventure in the next installment of Mina Chara’s series.

Denial (Hero High Book 1) by Mina Chara was a great quick read. The pacing is fast and the introductions done quickly. I pictured the story as a comic book while I was reading and enjoyed it tremendously. I think this is a great young adult read and opens a few doors to have discussions with your kids if they read it. My son is too young but I am trying early on to turn him into a reader so I can understand how his brain works. I loved the setting, the characters, and the plots presented. I look forward to more from this series!

Mina Chara is a new author for me. This was a relatively short book, 3 chapters is all- but so full of information without being info overload. I honestly can’t wait to see what happens next. This book is about Friday Fitzsimmons and her beginning at Hero High. Throughout the book you meet new people who influence her in both positive and negative ways.Friday leaves her home, basically kicked out by her father, to get money for her family. She’s always wanted to be a hero, even if she doesn’t think her power is very good. It’s a quick read but very detailed. I enjoyed this and can’t wait for the next installment. There are so many different questions that she left open ended, I have no doubt the next books will be just as amazing.

Hero High Denial is the first book I’ve read by Mina Chara and it didn’t disappoint, young adults will love this book. The descriptions and scene mapping were so detailed which always helps me be able to see the story rather than just follow it so I really loved that quality. The first page had me interested in the story plot and I just couldn’t wait to see where the it went and how the characters would progress in Hero High. This is a new world and new age of superheroes to explore and fall in love with, anyone who enjoys the young adult genre will find this book satisfying. Now I can’t wait to read book 2….

Denial (Hero High Book 1)Denial by Mina Chara
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Denial is book 1 of the Hero High series and is set in the near future world of Icon City which is a haven for ‘powered one-percenters’. The story centres around seventeen year old Friday who is in her first year at Hero High, a famous school for people with powers. She has to live within the super structure and she has cameras following her around all the time. The school has very high expectations of its powered pupils but thankfully Friday has best friend Jake with her to help her settle in. Although this is a short story it packs a lot in and is a great start to the Hero High series. It has a fast paced storyline and the world building is well done, as I felt immersed in Icon City. I liked the main characters, Friday and Jake, and all the secondary characters were fascinating too and I look forward to them getting their own stories during the series.

This story was fast moving full of action. It is in the genre of YA but do not let that sway you away from this book. It is full of people with special powers. It takes place in Icon City, a have for powered one-percenters. How could you go wrong? You are among people who have special abilities like you. There are some different people who seem to be annoying. Will she ( the main character) figure out what is going on? Can her and Jake(best friend) survive this new school? I recommend this story to find out this and other amazing details.

Hero High, Denial, by Mina Chara is a wonderful superhero story. This story is fast paced, action packed, and full of sass all the way through! From the first page you’re thrown into it, and it keeps you until you’ve read the whole book!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Denial is the first book in the Hero High series by Mina Chara. I haven’t read her work before, but I enjoyed this book. At first I thought it was going to be cheesy because of the names of the city and characters. They were not very original, using names like Super Structure, Hero High, and Captain Fantastic. Despite that, I am glad I stuck out the story because I ended up loving it. Its a great start to a series that I think will be awesome. The writing style is very descriptive and you feel like you’re right there alongside the characters. It seems like The Incredibles meets XMen, and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
The book follows 17 year old Friday, who has powers. She is shipped off to Hero High, which is a school for those with powers, but doubles as a reality show. They are followed by cameras, and merchandise is made to look like them and sold in the malls. These super kids are assigned a team and a mentor, have their wardrobes picked for them, the whole nine yards. Friday is trying to stay in the shadows, but keeps finding herself in the spotlight.

This book follows right where Denial (book 1) leaves off. Friday is trying to figure out what is going on and who has her back (and who doesn’t). She is under constant scrutiny because people are watching her every move. She also knows some people are probably acting for the cameras and not being honest. She doesn’t know if anyone can be trusted!
I enjoyed this book. I am not much of a superhero story reader…but I have found myself pulled into both books in this series. I want to know what’s really going on as much as the main character does! There is a lot…but it isn’t overwhelming. I will continue to read the series to get my answers!

4 out of 5 stars

Denial is the first book in the Hero High series written by Mina Chara and it’s the first book that I have read by this author. This is a fast-paced story that takes you to a school where powered people live and train. The main character Friday seems to follow her own drum and is finding out that strange things are happening around her. The secondary characters and the main character are interesting, and I enjoyed the interactions and their quirks.

Friday’s father finds out she has powers, so he sends her to the most famous school for powered people in the world, Hero High. Now she has to live at the Super Structure, and let cameras follow her round every day. She never knew how many expectations they had for powered people. Does she fit in? Dos she wants to be a superhero. Can she live with the cameras following her daily?
You will need to read this story to find out.

This was a great little adventure. Even though its just 150 pages long it has everything a great book needs and leaves the reader wanting more.

Friday is sent to Hero High to train to be a superhero. However its not all plain sailing. Every where she turns she gets into trouble.

Friday is trying to prove herself but there is a lot of distractions. The main one being who is the person they are calling the Figure in the Flames?

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I enjoyed it from page one to the very end. It was a short story so I got through it pretty quickly. The characters really brought this story to life and they’re what made this story good. The main character had powers that get her sent away to school. She needs to learn all she can especially about the others around her. I cannot wait to see what else this author had in store for us and I am looking forward to reading more of this series. I would recommend this to a friend.

Anger (Hero High Book w) by Mina Chara picks up where the first book left off. It is a Young Adult fantasy adventure story where a lot happens as the students learn more about themselves and what they can do and adjusting to life as a hero and being in a television reality show. Friday seems to always find herself in situations not of her making and getting herself out of them, but she is also drawn to finding out just what is going on and who is involved. If you love adventure heroes, a little mystery and an evil Dr D then this series is an intriguing read.

Anger (Hero High Book 2) by Mina Chara. This is the 2nd entertaining book in the Hero High series. Its the story of a girl with super powers and she has been a part of the Hero Channel’s most famous show Hero High. She meets 2 important heroes in this episode, the Figure of the Flames and Dr Dangerous. She is also dealing with anxiety on how to fit in to the school just like a normal teenager. She is trying to avoid the cameras that film her 24/7 so that she can investigate some bad guys. Her persona hero, Captain America wants to take her under her wing but his mentee Ashley is not having it. She doesn’t trust Hero High in fact she doesn’t know who to trust or not to trust. This book will keep you turning the pages until the very end. Its a fantastic book!

She knows she has to be careful because they’re looking.
She was a fixation on the show and a daily part of the Hero Channel’s show, “Hero High.” She met two important heroes in the Figure in the Flames and the copycat Mr Dangerous. Life in the superstructure is hazardous and meddling, especially when trying to expose the truth behind where the bad guys come from. She’s trying to avoid the cameras but she knows they know something.
She is distrustful of the Hero’s Channel. There’s no telling who the bad guys are or vice versa. Her personal hero, Captain Fantastic wants to take her under his wing but there’s one problem: His personal mentee; Ashley.
She doesn’t know who to trust or where to go for the truth.
The mysteries of these books are compelling and the fact that the author puts you in the front seat as “She/Her” is even better for the reader. We get to use our imagination in this futuristic novel. I’ve loved both books so far. I’m keeping this on my waitlist for the rest of this collection.

Denial by Mina Chara a four-star read that you won’t be able to deny. This is number one in the Hero High series and shows promise for the rest of the series, this was such a short read, I latterly started it thinking I would read a couple of pages and then start some work, but I started it and finished it and then started the work. Friday is the main character and she will make you smile, she is such a firecracker, watching her story will just keep you hooked. The rest of the series cant come son enough as I want to see what will happen next.

I’ve enjoyed this young adult genre more than most teens I know or young adults. In this futuristic mystery, we go into the world of Icon City, a haven for one percenters. You instantly fall in love with the characters, especially the main character who has a powerful personality which is set to inspire the readers.
She’s fully aware of her personality which brings her great strengths in a lot of ways plus she’s aware of her surroundings and how it affects her.
In this fantasy, she used to be a “normal” 17-year-old girl until her dad found out she had superpowers and shipped her off to a famous school for powered people of the world — Hero High.
At Hero High, she lives in the SuperStructure where cameras follow her every move. People with powers have just as many expectations on them as humans do with the pressures they succumb themselves to. Through this she’s making money for the family and she’s starting to see the place for what it is.
She is us as we’re along for the ride with her as she takes on the role of hero as she attempts to discover the identity of an unknown villain and their intentions with the school. She’s a selfless hero in for the ride no matter the consequences.
Great adventure with mysteries. Fun read full of action-packed pages full of unpredictable twists and turns. Very fun to get through.

Denial
Hero High
Book 1
By Mina Chara
☆☆☆☆☆
This is a full length fantasy. Written for the coming of age romance readers.

Welcome to the School for the Power People. Hero High provides all the things the students need. This is a different type of school you are used to. These high school students are told what to wear, as the school provides the clothes. The students are followed around by cameras and are told who they are to date. That being the case, they are paid for this. Good or bad the money is to help out their families. That is all I will tell you! No spoilers!

Mina Chara has written this Fantasy Adventure. I love the characters in this story. But most of all I feel as though I am right there beside the teens. This book is loaded with action and will keep you reading. Although it is written for teens and young adults, I feel anybody could read it. This gives you a chance to discuss this book with your teens, open communication is always GREAT. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series, as well as discussing it with my teenager. Well Done Mina Chara!

Denial is the first book in the Hero High series by Mina Chara. It is a Young Adult fantasy adventure story set in a ‘superhero’ high school.
When 17 year old Friday develops ‘powers’ she is sent to Hero High, where her adventure begins, and things start to get interesting.
Mina Chara is a new-to-me author whose book popped up on my recommended book feed- it piqued my interest, so I grabbed a copy to see what I would find. I am happy to say that I enjoyed the story and am looking forward to the rest of the series.
If you love young adult reads with fantasy, adventure, and superheroes- then this is definitely the book for you.

Thank you, Mina Chara!
