Super Human

Super Human

2023 NH Literary Awards Finalist for Outstanding Work of Young Adult Fiction.

At the crossroads of supernatural and human potential, an anxious teen finds a mystical world within himself, unleashing powers he didn’t know he had.

Will Freeman is more anxious than other teens.  When his new friend Lily Powers invites herself over and the two go treasure hunting in his attic, they discover a peculiar change purse that belonged to Will’s father. Lily accompanies Will as he sets out to learn about the change purse and his father’s disappearance. After a stranger approaches Will and Lily in a supermarket and promises answers to Will’s questions, a string of inexplicable events make Will question his sanity. His fears come crashing in on him when Lily is abducted by the A. U., the Agents of Unchange, who are equipped with futuristic weaponry. They are looking for the one person who embodies the ability to open Infinity. Amidst a backdrop of supernatural chaos, Will discovers he is super human.


Super Human works on levels. There’s the story, which is both thrilling and inspiring, and that would be enough for any reader. But then there’s this other level, one that explores the inner workings of our mind and how we might use it to become Super Human.

I’ve worked with a lot of new authors. Of all the new authors’ books I’ve read, this one is the best. Bravo.

—Belinda M., Author, Phillip’s Quest

“Well done, sir, well done. You’ve written a really good story that’s gotten me thinking about how we view the world.”

—Robin B., Editor

“Can a teenage boy come into his own to save his family and possibly the world? It sounds like a great story— and it is. Will and his friends are likable, stubborn, and endearing. Plot turns the pages. The superhuman aspect adds another dimension. Loved it!

—Kathleen H., Writer

“What a fun, energetic read! I was fascinated by the story from the very beginning, and I had a hard time putting the book down to go to sleep. Dan Pouliot did an incredible job with the concept of human potential, creating a riveting read that kept me wanting more through every twist and turn.”

—T. Curry

A must read for only one dollar. You can’t beat it. Super Human sets the stage from the get go with a catastrophic event, leaving the reader to ask what happened? Well like a good story and a brilliant author, Dan is laying out the pieces, yet allowing the reader to be the detective. The story can be viewed as an adult story, yet maybe it is necessary Dan uses a human going through the transformation from child to an adult which makes me wonder maybe the child is the adult without the ability to drive a car, yet with the ability to be driven and possibly save the day. You as the reader must be patient by getting to know the characters in our story. I say our story because like an onion you will peel your way down to the core of being on the cusp of witnessing humans with gifts we ourselves view as a fantasy, yet it is in our reality if we read the news while pausing and paying attention to the subtleties the author has woven through this incredible journey.”

—Cais Thomas

“This is the first novel I read in more than I can remember and it didn’t disappoint, pretty much the opposite! I love how the stories mix together, the fast pace of the plot, how there are many insights woven into the narrative, the relatability of the characters and how they develop. It was a very pleasant read and I recommend it for those of you who like thrillers, suspense and the inner workings of the mind.”


Super Human is a unique version of what it could look like to have a superpower in the real world. The characters are well developed, relatable and yet flawed in their own ways.” —Eric Demarest, Author
