Twelve-year-old Mack never would have guessed that he is destined for a more-than-medium life. And then, one day, a 3,000-year-old man named Grimluk appears in the boys'' bathroom to deliver some startling news: Mack is one of the Magnificent Twelve. An evil force is on its way, and it''s up to Mack to track down 11 others in order to stop it.
From the Publisher:

Twelve-year-old Mack MacAvoy suffers from a serious case of mediumness. Medium looks. Medium grades. Medium parents who barely notice him. With a list of phobias that could make anyone crazy, Mack never would have guessed that he is destined for a more-than-medium life.

And then, one day, something incredibly strange happens to Mack. A three-thousand-year-old man named Grimluk appears in the boys’ bathroom to deliver some startling news: Mack is one of the Magnificent Twelve, called the Magnifica in ancient times, whatever that means. An evil force is on its way, and it’s up to Mack to track down eleven other twelve-year-olds in order to stop it. He must travel across the world to battle the wicked Pale Queen’s dangerous daughter, Ereskigal—also known as Risky. But Risky sounds a little scary, and Mack doesn’t want to be a hero. Will he answer the call?

A laugh-out-loud story filled with excitement and magic, The Magnificent Twelve: The Call is the first book in bestselling author Michael Grant’s hilarious new fantasy adventure series.

Annotation:
Going from being a regular, almost boring kid with a handful of nutty phobias, 12-year-old Mack is ill-prepared to become a savoir of the world. But when the ancient Grimluk seeks him out in the bathroom at school, Mack learns that he's part of the Magnificent 12, a dozen pre-teens who are destined to fight evil. Can he get over himself and take a chance? Reluctantly, Mack sets off on a wild adventure to find the others kids that will change the course of his life forever. Filled with riotous humor, this is the first book in the Magnificent 12 series by bestselling author Michael Grant.
