Leo has a great imagination. He dreams and playacts at being a brave, heroic gladiator; he even has a homemade gladiator’s hat. In real life it appears that everyone else has something to be proud of except him. When Leo does something he knows is wrong to impress some kids at school, lies about it and is called a hero for saving a neighbor's dog, he becomes entangled in so many lies he can’t find the courage to admit the truth. This is a powerful story about bravery, truth, friendship and what it means to be a real hero. Like Sarah Lean’s other books for tweens, this one is heartfelt and meaningful with concise, insightful text; not to be missed.
