Hero-Type – Barry Lyga

Everyone is treating Kevin as a hero. He was in the right place and the right time and he saved a girl from being murdered.

Only Kevin knows though, why he was able to save her.

Things get even more complicated when Kevin is seen removing two patriotic “Support the Troops” ribbons from his car bumper. Now the town that lauded him as a hero turns on him, calling him unpatriotic. Kevin, who hadn’t thought much about it up to then, becomes politcially engaged, suddenly questioning what exactly supporting the troops or even saying the pledge of allegiance every day means.

This is another book that I did not like the cover for…it’s just kind of boring and doesn’t give you any idea what the book is actually about.  Nevertheless, I read it and really enjoyed it.  This book discusses right and wrong, politics, patriotism, love, friendship and a lot more.  Well worth the read!  – Jessica, Teen Librarian
