Title: Wanted: A Superhero to Save the World
Author: Bryan Davis
Published: October 1st 2017
About the Book
Eddie Hertz is smart, real smart. He has to be. What other twelve-year-old patrols the streets of Nirvana alone, hoping to foil the schemes of the evil Mephisto? Since Eddie is small for his age, he trusts in his Batman-style gadgets belt and acrobatic skills as well as lots of experience, like knowing how to swing across dark alleys without being seen.
Eddie has a dream, to become like Damocles, Nirvana’s great superhero. To make that dream come true, Eddie invented a device that is supposed to give him superpowers, but using it on himself is dangerous, maybe even fatal. He doesn’t have the nerve to try it.
When Mephisto unleashes an earthquake machine on the city, Eddie gets a surprising teammate — his quirky eight-year-old sister, Samantha, who comes up with an unexpected way to help Eddie in the frantic battle to prevent the biggest earthquake of all.Since Damocles has lost his ability to help in physical form, Eddie and Samantha are the only hope for Nirvana and the world.

Interview with Jack – Store clerk at Electronics Depot
Natalie: Thank you for the interview, Jack. Would you please tell me how you know Eddie and Samantha Hertz?
Jack: Sure, I always called them Megahertz and Kilohertz. Really funny, right? Anyway, Eddie used to come to our store all the time looking to get parts for stuff he’s working on. Since his mom doesn’t have much money, Eddie used to trade for the parts. He had this cool Virtual Reality helmet he invented, and he’d let me play with it. You know, I get a few hours on it and he’d get the parts, usually components we’re selling on the cheap to clear out for new models, like solar cells or computer chip sets. So, wanting to be a nice guy, I helped him out, you know, because his mom works hard to make ends meet.
Natalie: Yes, I heard about their father.
Jack: Yeah, really tragic. The way Eddie tells it, he was a great dad. Not too many of them around anymore.
Natalie: And how do you know Samantha?
Jack: One day Eddie brought her into the store, and she had her hair all tied up real cute, you know, pink ribbons, the whole nine yards. That made me suspicious right away. I mean, what little girl gets dolled up so early in the morning just to go to an electronics store, right?
Anyway, Eddie said he wanted a computer/projector combo we had on sale, but I said that it’s worth a lot more than hours on a VR helmet, you know what I mean? Then he offered to trade the helmet itself for the stuff he wanted. Well, that helmet’s worth thousands. It’s like beyond state of the art, so I said sure. But Eddie knew it was worth a lot so he wanted some cash on top of the other stuff. Reasonable, right? So I went to the boss’s office and told him what it’s worth. The boss said to give Eddie, I don’t remember, maybe a couple of hundred for it, even though it’s worth a lot more.
When I came out, Eddie knew exactly how much we said it was worth, even though there was no way he could’ve heard what we said in the office. I don’t know what happened, but Samantha was grinning like she was about to get cheese fries, or like someone told her to look as cute as possible so I couldn’t argue too much with Eddie. Anyway, the boss and I were busted, so we gave Eddie quite a bit more money, still not as much as the helmet was worth, but Eddie took it.
To this day, I feel like it was a setup. Somehow Eddie must have invented a listening device, and Samantha had something to do with it. Maybe I’ll never know.
Natalie: That’s quite a story, Jack. Have you spoken to either of them since that day?
Jack: Yeah, they both came into the store not long after the big quake. Eddie wanted a whole new computer system, the best we had. As you can imagine, the quake ruined most of the store’s inventory. The ceiling collapsed and crushed a lot of stuff, and we were still cleaning up. Wanting to be a nice guy, I gave him a super deal on a great computer. It just had a bent case. I told him he could pay it off over six months, no interest. Well, he handed me a wad of cash. I asked him what happened? Did he get an inheritance or something? Or maybe he robbed a bank? And again, Samantha just grinned at me, but now she wasn’t wearing pink ribbons. She had a cape, you know, like Superman. Or Supergirl, I guess. That’s the last time I saw either of them.
Natalie: Thank you very much, Jack. I appreciate all the information about Eddie and Samantha Hertz.
Jack: Not a problem. But if you figure out what they’re up to, shoot me an email. Okay?
Natalie: That’s not likely, Jack. I think they’re both too smart to reveal their secrets.
