Review of We Can Be Heroes by Catherine Burton
pub July 2011 978-1405261333 ...Bloomsbury
We Can Be Heroes is an intriguing book all about Ben. Ben and his cousin, Jed, being looked after by his grandparents in the summer holidays. When they meet a girl called Priti their imaginations wander and they think Priti’s brother is a suicide bomber but everything becomes more sinister when a little girl is kidnapped and cultural differences start a riot. This book also has a strong theme of family relationships and their effect. I think this book is thought provoking but still has some funny parts. I would recommend this book for young teenagers.
