Author Daniel Hernandez, the 20-year-old intern credited for saving the life of Gabrielle Giffords in 2011, was thrust into the media spotlight and praised for his actions during the assault. His new memoir includes a gripping, moment-by-moment recounting of the shooting. From there, Hernandez describes the ensuing torrent of media interviews, then backtracks to provide an account of his school years, when he mastered English, thrived academically, and resisted peer pressure despite bullying over his size, sexuality, and Mexican-American background. Throughout, Hernandez’s tone is humble, earnest, and impassioned.
"Daniel Hernandez is a shining example of civic duty and resilience in the face of hardship. His story will inspire young people everywhere and remind us all that there are true heroes among us." —Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief, Huffington Post Media Group
