East End Irregulars, #1
by Michael DiBaggio
When he was five, Sebastian Pereira watched the Target beat up a bank robber. Ever since then, he's wanted to be a superhero. Now a teenager, he's chasing the dream. As the water-controlling psychic vigilante Torrent, he prowls the streets of Pittsburgh, doing his best to right wrongs and keep his double life a secret.
But life in the mask brings more challenges than he anticipated, and even dual superpowers aren't always enough. Besides facing down the street thugs, monsters, and madmen, he's got to master his hormones and keep his conscience. With help from his paranormally gifted crush and his thrill-seeker best friend, he just might make it.
