Do you like books that are fantasy and mystery? If you do, you will love the book Hero by Mike Lupica.  If you read this book, you are not going to sleep at night because you are going to want to know what will happen next.
Hero is like a roller coaster, it has twists and turns. It’s about a boy, Zach. Zach’s dad is the Vice President of the United States. The Vice President’s plane crashed and Zach thinks someone shot it down. Zach goes to the crash site and he finds out something special about his dad and himself!

Hero is full of action, suspense, and excitement!

    I love a book full of suspense and surprise! It is a great feeling to not want to put a book down. Thanks for posting this review, I’ll have to check this out!

  2. Sounds very exciting Steven. You managed to keep the suspense going by hinting at “something special.” Nice work.

  3. I don’t typically read Mike Lupica, but I’m glad I read this one! It was full of action from the start. Do you know of another book like it?

    I wonder what happens when and where the plane crashed. But why is it based on a vice president?
