What does Thom decide to do?
Hero is a funny and moving story. Even though it is advertised as a young adult read, older adults will also enjoy this book. You will love the quirky characters that keep this book moving at a fast pace. This book has a very busy plot, which touches on some very serious issues; but at the same time, the author interjects much humor throughout the story. If you enjoy comic books and a story with a rich plot be sure to add ďHeroĒ to your reading list.
