From the Author:

Review from VOYA
As a Jr. High English teacher, I have seen too many students who do not have anyone in their life to look up to. Hero looks at the lack of heroes in today's society, and examines what makes a hero. So far, my book seems to be receieved well by students, especially the reluctant readers.Here is another review that Hero has gotten.VOYA/December Hero had me laughing out loud on page three and nearly crying several times thereafter. Sean Parker is a tough kid, abused and neglected by his mother and seemingly abandoned by his father. A loner who refuses to join a gang, he manages to get into trouble regularly enough that, while suspended from ninth grade for fighting, he is caught out after curfew and sentenced to perform community service hours at a farm. During an intense week on Mr. Hassler's farm, Sean accomplishes more psychological growth than most achieve in a year and returns to school a changed person--only the school has not changed. Although heavily moral in places, Hero will have broad YA appeal because it cuts to the heart of issues about self-esteem, relationships, responsibility, and heroes. From the opening English assignment (to write about a hero) through Sean's diverse experiences, readers explore the characteristics of heroism. Rottman's novel closes with Sean's English paper--beautifully written, in character, yet unexpected. Few will be able to replicate the experiences Sean has, from the fairytale farm to his astounding psychological breakthroughs, but many will be glad to accompany him on his journey through these pages. A heart-wrenching tale. Buy it.--Cynthia L. Blinn.
