He Was My Hero, Too is part of The Hero Book Series. In this book, by author Jerald LeVon Hoover, we revisit Kirby, a young man whose life has changed after a heartbreaking loss of a friend. We get glimpses into the life of Simon, another young man, whose life has also changed. We can observe how a tragic event can make a person feel out of control when there are no answers for a senseless loss, or determined to do their best to make the most out of a terrible situation.
Just as the books A Hopeful Hero and My Friend, My Hero are designed to impart a moral message, so is He Was My Hero, Too. For such a serious book, this one did make me chuckle a few times when it mentioned celebrity legends from the past, because I wondered if the youth of today would even know who these celebrities are. This provided some comic relief for me in a book that was otherwise very serious, very heavy, and centered on difficult circumstances.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
