What is a hero?
A sports Star? A celebrity? What about someone who saves a life? What about an ordinary person who steps up and meets the ultimate adversity with hop?
The six teens featured in this book are full such heroes, because each one of them has saved one life - their own.
Award-winning journalist Byron Pitts chronicles six incredible true stories of determination, perseverance, and optimism. He shows us how each of these teens was able to "be the one" and overcome the darkest of circumstances with an irrepressible light.
