What is it like to stand face to face with an invading army or an angry, screaming mob? Have you ever wondered if you would risk your own life to stand up for a cause you believed in? Leading a nation in battle, rescuing a fallen friend, feeding the homeless or crying out for peace---these are the actions of heroes. Have you ever wondered if there is a hero in you?
Through the pages of this book, you will read the true stories of amazing young heroes. Ordinary kids, just like you, whom history forced into extraordinary situations. With courage and determination, they overcame fear and doubt, and chose to stand up and fight, to survive, to live! You will meet kids like Sybil Ludington and Pierre Labiche who understood that freedom is bought with a price and that price might mean their lives. Kids like Susie King Taylor and Ryan White who struggled in a world gone crazy and managed to make life better for themselves and others. And Claudette Colvin and Iqbal Masih whose courage ripped open our eyes to the injustices lurking in our own back yards.
There are courageous kids on every continent, in every nation. From ancient China to modern war-torn Israel, they continue to fight for peace in their homelands, justice for themselves and others, and the right to live, learn, and grow in a world free from hate and tyranny.
Through the pages of this book, you will discover heroic young people willing to step up, face incredible obstacles, and fight for what is right. Ordinary kids whose courage, imagination, and hard work changed and is changing our world.
