  • Paperback: 232 pages

Scott Addison never set out to be a hero.  But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you can’t run away from your destiny.  On the heels of his father’s death, Scott and his mother move from Iowa City, Iowa to the small Southern Illinois town of Meadowbrook.

 Scott just wanted to blend in…to observe quietly…to be one of the kids.  Unfortunately for Scott, his instincts, heart, and integrity took over on his first day at his new middle school.  Scott stood up to and faced down three larger boys torturing a wiry little boy named Paul.  No one should ever have to stand alone.

 This simple act of kindness and chivalry put Scott in the midst of the conflict and on the receiving end of the bullies’ antics.  When the hazing goes too far, Scott decides it is time to take a stand…no matter the cost.  Of course that’s the price heroes must pay.
