Sidekicked, by John David Anderson

SidekickedSummary:  Drew is possessed of super senses–his hearing, sight, taste, touch, and smell are the most powerful on the planet–making him literally the most sensitive kid in school. And then there’s his best friend, Jenna– able to throw an eighteen-wheeler the length of a city block. Add in trying to keep his sidekick life a secret from everyone, including his parents, and the truth is clear: middle school is pretty much a drag regardless of whether you have superpowers. But this is all before a supervillain long thought dead returns to the city of Justica and Drew’s two identities threaten to crash head-on into each other.
