Publisher Comments:

For as long as he can remember, fourteen-year-old Joshua Blevins has wanted to be a superhero. He has the brains, the passion, and the heart. Theres only one problem: he doesnt have any superpowers. But Josh isnt about to let that stop him.

Determined not to give up on his dream, Josh enlists the aid of his mentor, Captain Fearless, a retired costumed adventurer, to gain entrance to the Burlington Academy for the Superhuman under the false identity of Chance Fortune—a superhuman with the power of having unnaturally good luck.

Masquerading as Chance, Josh rises among the ranks of his fellow students at the Academy, eventually becoming the leader of his own combat team, the Outlaws. Together, Chance and his teammates Psy-Chick, Shocker, Gothika, Space Cadet, Iron Maiden, and Private Justice make new friends, battle new enemies, and ultimately find themselves caught up in a struggle for the fate of the universe. Can Chance and the Outlaws save the universe—AND survive their freshman year?


For as long as he can remember, 14-year-old Joshua Blevins has wanted to be a superhero. There's only one problem: he doesn't have any superpowers. However, Josh isn't about to let that stop him.

"Shane Berryhill surpasses his power-packed first book, delivering more cool thrills, clever twists and great characters in a world of wildly imaginative dangers. There is plenty here for fans of the caped and cowled, and any who enjoy a smart action-suspense tale brimming with sci-fi/ fantasy elements and a dash of humor."
-Michael Reisman

Praise for Chance Fortune and the Outlaws:A New York Public Library Books for the Teen Age selection A Texas Lone Star Reading List selection “Readers weary of Potter-esque fantasy but hungry for another semi-humorous / semi-serious school setting, and lovers of superhero stories in general, will delight in this first volume in the Adventures of Chance Fortune series, ideally structured for many further adventures.”—Publishers Weekly

“Berryhill’s debut novel kicks off an engrossing series, The Adventures of Chance Fortune, that takes formulas both old and new and gives them a zippy twist.... A lively and engrossing tale that neither takes itself too seriously nor underestimates its readers….Here’s hoping Berryhill has several series entries ready to go.”—VOYA

“This morning one of my students returned the book, Chance Fortune and the Outlaws. This student was raving about the book and wanting to check out the "next" book. It is always rewarding to find a book that excites a student.”
-C. Reardon, CA Middle School Librarian / Media Coordinator

“I just wanted to write and say that I can't wait for the next Chance Fortune book! It is my favorite book! I really loved how Chance learned that he didn't need superpowers, just his own intelligence and compassion. Thank you for writing a book so special!
…All my 5th grade friends loved the book too! My mom said she'd get me the next one for Christmas. I don't know if I can wait that long!”
-Seth Thompson, Age 10
