After a summer of fighting crime as Gilded, the world's only superhero, Miles Taylor is bummed to learn that nothing has changed for him at Chapman Middle School. He is still the primary target of the Jammer's bullying. And Josie, the girl of his dreams, has put him squarely in the friend zone. Miles starts spending more and more time as Gilded, neglecting his schoolwork and his friends.

On the verge of losing everything--and everyone--he cares about, Miles must discover the hero within himself before the general puts his evil plans into action.
