In just a little over 100 pages, Pitts has given us six stories of young people who have overcome tremendous odds in their lives. These are true heroes. They overcame child abuse, bullying, psychotic parents and war.

Their stories are not just those of survival, but of true success in life. The stories are inspiring and are easy to read. Many of these heroes credit God for strength for their successes, but all knew that they had to “be the one” to make changes in their lives.

I strongly recommend this as an addition to middle school and upper elementary libraries.
