After a tragedy leaves a boy an orphan, he discovers that he has special powers that will help save lives in the young adult adventure, E-Z Dickens Superhero (Book One: Tattoo Angel) by Cathy McGough. Thirteen-year-old Ezekiel Dickens, E-Z to his friends and family, is an average boy with a passion for baseball. When an accident rips away his parents and confines him to a wheelchair, E-Z believes that his life is over until two lights zoom their way into his life and change its course forever. Now, E-Z discovers that on the night of the accident, he agreed to trade the use of his legs for his life. He has a mission and, with the help of the lights, he is assigned tasks to save humans in peril. Strange things begin happening to E-Z that leave him confused and scared. After a tattoo suddenly appears on his back that abruptly transforms into a pair of powerful angel wings, and his chair develops a life of its own, E-Z begins to question if he's losing his mind. The lights' explanations are dubious, but E-Z doesn't seem to have much of a choice in what is happening to him. With a super-wheelchair and a modified body, what could possibly go wrong?
