Nick Townley has lived his entire life—all eleven years—at Black Butte Ranch, nestled in the foothills of the snow-capped Cascade Mountains. While his parents push him to study harder, practice sports more, and make friends his own age, Nick prefers to retreat into his superhero universe and create exciting Adventures of Click comics.

When a string of robberies threatens Dad' s job, forcing them to move across the country, Nick' s world implodes. He loves his home, and what will he do about the $237,000 in cash under his bed that Great Gramp gave him before he died? Desperate to stop the move, Nick steps off his comic book pages and ventures into the night as Click, an undercover superhero. Catching thieves would be a lot easier if he had actual superpowers.

When three new kids discover his identity and want to join him, Nick vows to stay undercover... until he realizes even a superhero needs friends. But can he ask them to put their lives in danger to save his home?

Profile Picture

Nick had always been very close with his grandpa, or Great Gramp as he liked to call him. Great Gramp understood him in a way his parents didn't and loved him as he was, even if he wasn't a great soccer player like his dad and liked to make comics instead of study. Nick loves to write and illustrate comics featuring the superhero Click, who he made up with his grandpa. After his grandpa died, Nick keeps his legacy going by helping the elderly in his town, the way his grandpa would have. He helps them with chores around the house and spends time with them.

Profile Picture

Shh! There is a secret hero living in Black Butte Ranch! . . . Mild-mannered Nick Townley loves painting and video games, much to the disappointment of his parents. But he finds comfort in the memories of his late great grandfather, who introduced him to the world of superheroes and comics. With Great Gramp, he created the superhero Click, a combination of their two names. After Great Gramp's passing and unbeknownst to his parents, Nick is left with a shoe box stash of cash and a new responsibility: to be the "guardian" of the "old people" in his community.
