Reviewed by Samantha Gregory for Readers' Favorite

The Super Twins by Andy Slinger is the story of two brothers who are dealing with the loss of their mother when a freak accident gives them superpowers. Ryan and Jake have had it hard, but they can use their abilities to do a lot of good. Of course with superheroes, there must be a bad guy for them to face and Ryan and Jake are in for the fight of their lives. But they have each other's backs and together they can do anything. A fun, fast story that is easy to read and leads to a surprising conclusion.

Andy Slinger has created an entertaining story with The Super Twins. The characters are well developed and held my attention as an adult reader because the author took the time to make the characters relatable and sympathetic. The loss of their mother is a classic superhero trope, losing a loved one, and this adds real depth to the story. Sometimes the heroes and the villains face the same tragedy, but it is how they choose to react which shows their real character. The boys choose to be good. The dialogue was great and fun. I think this book will really appeal to children and young adults, probably in the 9 -12 range. I think it appeals to both boys and girls too, although with two male protagonists I think it will draw in more boy readers. I think it will do well on the market especially with the success of the MCU and DC right now.
