What more book could be a more perfect read for flu season than this one?

Middle school is like a video game: avoid all the dangerous obstacles and you'll level up and survive. The trouble is, Jensen isn't really the kind of person who is great at avoiding obstacles, especially those of the school persuasion. This is a wonderful story for anyone who's ever felt like they don't fit in.

These are not the gods of the Marvel universe. These gods are petty, backstabbing, and (in the case of Thor) often pretty dumb. The stories flow together so seamlessly that the only time you'll be jolted out of the world of Thor and Odin is when you find yourself laughing out loud at their antics.
