Product Description
Don't Call Me Hero masterfully weaves a story about high school life, comic book obsessions, the pitfalls of celebrity, and the meaning of true friendship. It's another Friday night, and Rawly is struggling with his homework at his mom's Mexican restaurant, which is also on the brink of failure. Since his dad died, Rawly's mom has had to work twice as hard. And tutoring classes mean he won't get to see his brother Jaime, who's in prison. All Rawly looks forward to is getting lost in comic books. But after rescuing a young woman, he's hailed as a hero. Suddenly, reporters want to interview him, and his mom is sure the publicity will be good for business. Everyone at school wants to hang out with him and the girl of his dreams is finally paying attention to him. But, do they really like Rawly? Or is it his newfound fame they're interested in?
