Publisher's Summary

Stand-up comedian and Hollywood box-office hit Kevin Hart keeps the laughs coming in a middle-grade novel about a boy who has big dreams of making a blockbuster superhero film. Perfect for listeners of James Patterson's Middle School series and Lincoln Peirce's Big Nate series.

Marcus is NOT happy to be stuck in after-school film class...until he realizes he can turn the story of the cartoon superhero he’s been drawing for years into an actual MOVIE! There’s just one problem: He has no idea what he’s doing. So he’ll need help, from his friends, his teachers, Sierra, the strong-willed classmate with creative dreams of her own, even Tyrell, the local bully who’d be a perfect movie villain if he weren’t too terrifying to talk to.

Making this movie won’t be easy. But as Marcus discovers, nothing great ever is - and if you want your dream to come true, you’ve got to put in the hustle to make it happen.

Comedy superstar Kevin Hart teams up with award-winning author Geoff Rodkey and lauded illustrator David Cooper for a hilarious and inspiring story about bringing your creative goals to life and never giving up, even when nothing’s going your way.

IT WAS HILARIOUS

I think the best part was that Kevin Hart read it so he made it funny. Also you could see it in your head easily.

Worth a listen

Laughed out loud more than once. Completed a few sentences. Really enjoyed the story. Mr. Hart did ok reading, all characters had the same voice, but it worked for reading the story like a book.
Really enjoyed see Marcus' character change with the help of him very patient friend. Over all really like the story.

Excellent

I could seriously listen to Kev read anything. I have listen to 3 of his books. 2 of them I have listened to them twice. I never get tired of hearing his energy & just the way he communicates what he is reading.
I have been a fan of his works for... shit I don't even know for how many yrs! I look forward to what he will do next!! Which btw is going to be amazing!!! Cuz that's just the type of guy he is 😁♥️ Mad Love For You Mr. Hart ♥️
I was channeling a little of him in that last bit 😄 Don't know if that is how it came off, but that's how I was saying it in my head (in his voice)🙃

How to write a story, and forgot a basic

Characters backgrounds missing hollowed the story, including Angel. ... rewrite. Angel's compassion needs to be told do a rewrite, central to everything!
