    A missing father, a distracted mother, a best friend who is a girl but not the unavailable girl you are crushing on--hey, being a teenager can be challenging. Now add in a newly discovered room in the basement that contains a robotic suit and things can become really complicated. The person wearing this suit, known as Mayhem, was responsible for bank robberies, but disappeared when Bailey's father went missing. Now the teen is intrigued and trying the suit out for himself.

Now add in a newly discovered room in the basement that contains a robotic suit and things can become really complicated. The person wearing this suit, known as Mayhem, was responsible for bank robberies, but disappeared when Bailey's father went missing. Now the teen is intrigued and trying the suit out for himself. Little does he know that it will put him in the power of an evil genius, force him to commit crimes, lead to deaths, and reveal some interesting truths about his own family. Oh, and the reader is being set up for a sequel. Told in the first person in an oral journal style, this lets Bailey tell the story while also expressing how he feels about it. Combine Iron Man with a teenage Spider Man mentality, and toss in a strong incentive to break the law, and you've pretty much got Bailey. This is aimed at secondary readers, and superhero fans will enjoy it.

    Loved this action-packed adventure tale and its many twists and turns. Bailey is a high-school student whose dad went missing in fourth grade. One day he accidentally discovers a bunker twenty feet under his house, containing “Mayhem,” a bulletproof robot suit that was famously used to rob banks (spoils went to the poor). Thanks to the scientific genius of its creator, Mayhem has a full complement of superpowers and Bailey can’t resist trying it out. Soon he’s in league with the mysterious “Mr. Loved this action-packed adventure tale and its many twists and turns. Bailey is a high-school student whose dad went missing in fourth grade.

Thanks to the scientific genius of its creator, Mayhem has a full complement of superpowers and Bailey can’t resist trying it out. Soon he’s in league with the mysterious “Mr. Jones” who wants to help Bailey rescue his dad from the Bloody Front, a bunch of evil terrorists. But Mr. Jones is not all he seems and Bailey must figure out the truth with the help of best friend Caroline, a fellow fan of The Great British Bake-Off and Star Trek (useful when she has to decipher a coded message in Klingon). Expect tons of zany humor and a little romance, though it’s not easy getting a girl to accompany you to the winter formal when you’re trying to stop a villain from blowing up the world. This fresh and funny story is a must-read for fans of the spy and superhero genre.

    I read this in one sitting and couldn't put it down. I immediately ordered a copy for my nephew. I was particularly drawn to the idea that the book was inspired by classic comic books, and feeling a bit nostalgic, was curious to see if the author was able to bring the thrill and excitement of those classic comic books to life in his work. He did. His tale was captivating, and he ended the book in a way that would suggest a sequel, which I am very much looking forward to reading as well!

    I would recommend this book to anybody who is interested in coming of age books. Mayhem and madness is full of suspense and many other emotions as you read through the book. You can get to know the characters and their intentions and very well displays the life of a teenage Bailey. While finding out that his dad was kidnapped he goes to his dads rescue.

    This supervillain story by J. A. Dauber is comic book inspired and will appeal readers who enjoy first person action. It was ok but not my favorite. I wanted Bailey to deal more with the unintended consequences of his actions. Read more at Bookish Adventures. This supervillain story by J. A.

    Don't take my rating as a reflection of the book's quality. The writing was actually well done (reminded me heavily of Rick Riordan's narrating style). I was just expecting the main character to be more like Artemis Fowl combined with Dirk Lloyd from the Dark Lord books - teen bad guy with high tech gear. Instead, the main character, Bailey, is doing 'bad guy' stuff to save his dad (so he's actually a good guy). So my rating is just for me only.
