Kid normal
Eleven year old Murph's mum has been unable to find permanent work, so the family has had to move many times, not only homes but towns and schools and Murph has just about given up on staying put in one place long enough to make and retain friends. When all the schools in this latest town are full Murph and his mum have an even bigger problem until by pure chance they stumble upon a school hidden behind many corners and backstreets. Murph is accepted and there begins an education like nothing Murph has experienced before. It appears that somehow Murphy has landed in a school aimed at finding and training super heroes, with each of the students having some sort of magical capability, although some appear to have little use such as a boy who can make his head swell like a balloon or a girl who can make thunderstorms. Can these skills, along with Murph who has none, really save the day?
