The Afterglow Wireless Headset is a headset that you can use with Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, PC Gaming and all mobile devices. It has three different sound modes and has comfortable ear cushions. It also has three different ways it can light up. The Afterglow Headset has a slide mic that was easy to slide in and out. There are controls on the ear piece. On top of all that, it has a rechargeable battery.
The Afterglow Wireless Headset is awesome. I liked how it lights up and that it has a mic. I used the headset with my Wii system and iPod. The headset is easy to use once an adult helps you hook it up and explains how to use it. The only thing I thought was confusing was the control on the earpiece because when you turned it up, the volume got lower and when you turned it down, the volume got higher. I think it should be the other way.
What I liked the best was that I could play the Wii or listen to music without distracting my family.
I think kids my age and older will really like this. I would recommend it to others because the headset is comfortable, cool to wear and you don't have to buy more batteries. The suggested price is $89.99, but you probably can find it for less. Visit Afterglow's website, afterglowgaming.com.

Book review: 'Super'
The book "Super," by Matthew Cody (Knopf), is a the sequel to his book "Powerless." I liked "Super" because it had an intriguing plot with lots of superheroes, and there was a super villain (Herman Plunkett, aka The Shroud). The book started slowly, but I would recommend it, especially for boys who like fantasy and adventure stories.
