Schools, parents, and the media do plenty of indoctrination about what success is supposed to look like - getting into a good college, making money, getting famous - but what teens are really hungry for is a larger purpose. since anti-bullying programs often focus too much on what kids AREN'T supposed to do, teachers will appreciate this positive, alternative vision of the heroic life. The topic of heroism also lends itself to discussion of real issues in kids' lives and how to handle them, making this an ideal, relevant title for teen book clubs.
