What does it take to turn a bully into a hero? Empathy and the power of forgiveness take center stage in this poignant novel by the award-winning author of The Boy at the Back of the Class. As long as he can remember, ten-year-old Hector has been getting in trouble. He feels that... not much else is expected from him. He doesn't even mind the frequent detention he's assigned, bragging some of my best, most brilliant ideas have come from sitting in detention. When he plays a prank on a homeless man, he is especially frowned upon by his schoolmate, Mei-Li, who saw everything. So Hector sets out to be viewed in a different light--as a hero. He tells authorities that he knows who has been stealing pieces of famous London statues--a series of crimes plaguing the city. But who would believe a kid who's only known as a menace and a bully? Hector will soon find out. This moving story told with humor and heart, presents readers with recognizable characters, like a bully, and a teacher's pet. But readers also come to know other characters--like those who are homeless, who live on the street, and whose stories are equally meaningful and important to share.
