Jack Blank has never known who his parents are or where he came from.  All he’s ever known is his bleak, dreary life at St. Barnaby's Home for the Hopeless, Abandoned, Forgotten, and Lost.  And then one day, when he’s being excluded from a bus trip, a deadly robot straight from Jack’s comic books comes to St. Barnaby’s, and it appears to be set on destroying Jack.  Then Jack gets another visitor, only this one wants to remove him from St. Barnaby’s altogether and take him to the home he’s never known: the Imagine Nation.  As Jack struggles to discover who he is and what his strange “super power” means, the rest of the Imagine Nation eyes him with suspicion.  Is Jack a hero who will be the savior of Imagine Nation, or is he its most terrifying threat instead?  Read Accidental Hero, a fast-paced action adventure, to find the answer!  (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
