Avery Pirzwick on Inside the Character's Studio!

I am a sucker for superheroes. It's true. Batman, Spiderman, Wolverine, heck...I even like Aquaman...and all he can do is talk to fish. So, it should come as no surprise that I am 100% in love with Avery Pirzwick, the star of Sarah Cross's Dull Boy. And I'm SUPER excited to host Avery here on the blog today.

What do you do if you can deadlift a car, and you spend your nights flying to get away from it all? If youare fifteen-year-old Avery Pirzwick, you keep that information to yourself. When youare a former jock turned freak, you canat afford to let the secret slip.

But then Avery makes some friends who are as extraordinary as he is. He realizes theyare more than just freaksatogether, maybe they have a chance to be heroes. First, though, they have to decide whether to trust the mysterious Cherchette, a powerful wouldbe mentor whose remarkable generosity may come at a terrible price.

Welcome, Avery!
