Don't Call Me Hero By Ray Villareal Cover Image


Rawly Sanchez's life sucks. It's Friday night, and he's struggling with homework in his mom's restaurant, which is also on the brink of failure. And starting next Saturday, algebra tutoring means he won't get to see his brother Jaime, who's in prison.

His whole life takes a turn for the better when he rescues a famous young woman from a flooded creek. The dramatic rescue is recorded and soon Rawly is being hailed as a hero. Suddenly, every reporter in town wants to interview him. Even kids who avoided him in the past now want to hang out with him. It's impossible to resist the popular quarterback's invitation to hang out, even if it means ditching his best friend. And best of all, the most beautiful girl in school wants to go out with him. But, do they really like him? Or do they just want to take advantage of his new-found fame?

Acclaimed author Ray Villareal writes another fast-paced novel for teens, featuring comic books and super heroes, about the value of true friendship.
