Product description

Product Description

Nicholas Sparks is a "normal" fourteen-year-old who likes rock music and sports. The only problem is that something has caused him to commit a terrible act that has changed his life forever. His psychiatrist thinks she can help him, but she doesn't know the dark secret that Nicholas is carrying... Every reader will be affected by the twists and turns which Nicholas experiences as he is propelled toward a revelation that will either save him or have terrible consequences. Told through a series of interviews, reports, and letter, this challenging novel is one that the reader will find difficult to put down until the end.

• Review - Canada Schoolnet 
"In Looking for a Hero, David Boyd presents us with Nicholas, a character burdened with a deep secret that is gradually revealed through the efforts of the physician assigned to his case. Through a series of interview transcripts, reports and letters, we learn that Nicholas has been referred for psychiatric assessment following a terrible act. The author skillfully leads the reader through a series of twists and turns, to confront a scenario that is as tragic as it is thought-provoking. Although the crime is dreadful, we come to a fuller understanding of the motivation, as well as a fuller realization of what it is to be, or to have, a hero. Looking for a Hero is a contemporary novel that kept this reviewer hooked right to the end."
