When you’re a Hero…

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a hero?

How will you be treated? Who will talk to you? Who won’t talk to you? Will you become the villain the minute you do something that isn’t hero-like? And why exactly are you a hero to begin with?

Well, here’s the book for you.

Hero-Type by Barry Lyga (author of The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl) will answer all these questions and more.

Because when an ordinary teenager, who lived his life “under the radar”, saves a girl from a serial killer, he’s made an instant hero.

What’s the only problem? The hero has a nasty secret.

And a hero with a secret isn’t really a hero, right? Well, Kevin Ross – the ordinary teenager – is about to discover the reality of being a “hero”. Beginning with the lime-light, the admiration, the support, and ending with the falsehoods and scorn.

Lgya’s novel is a fast-paced, easy read, filled with humor and wit.

Kevin is a typical teenager with secret crushes, bumbling knowledge of the opposite sex, and strange friends. But he’s also a hero, who has to learn what’s right and what’s wrong and why people are so quick to judge someone they put up on a pedestal.

And, eventually, what it really means to be hero.

Are you a hero when you speak for what you believe? Or are you a hero when you do what everyone wants you to do?

Lyga’s novel is a unique and compelling coming-of-age story that throws an unpopular boy into popularity then into infamy and maturity.

Hero-Type is a must read story. The excellent and dynamitic dialogue drives the story and the myriad of little known facts enhance the plot.

So, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to a hero or what makes a hero, this book if for you.

Careful though, this book may cause heroic acts and an increased interest in public speaking.
