Sophomore Freak (Reject High: A Young Adult Science Fiction Series Book 2) by Brian Thompson is the second book in this young adult fantasy fiction series. Over summer break, all Jason wants is to spend time with Rhapsody, his best friend, and Sasha, his girlfriend. He doesn't want to have to deal with his rage blackouts and he hopes this summer he can stay away from trouble. But trouble always seems to find Jason. When talk of a solar storm abounds, Jason worries that the sun's rays could weaken his abnormal human strength. Jason's enemies believe that anyone who absorbs the sun's radiation could become immortal. Jason joins the Collective to help stop this new enemy from harnessing the sun's unnatural power. The Collective has protected this power for years. Now they worry that the solar storm could kill millions, and they want Jason's help to stop it before it is too late.

This story is a mixture of science fiction, adventure, and fantasy that will appeal to readers of all three genres. It has interesting characters that participate in a explosive adventure. Readers will appreciate the intensity within this story. But it isn't all about superheroes and inhuman power and strength. There is tenderness between the characters and vulnerability. The characters are teenagers, so sometimes they are selfish or scared or foolish. But, overall, they are heroes, and readers will love how they take on the challenge of saving the world.
