Book Review – Aggie’s Nine Heroes by Diana Laurence
Meet the little girl who decided superheroes didn’t live only in comic books.
Then learn how she–and nine other amazing people–proved it.
Aggie Borkowski is only ten when she realizes the world needs help, and she can’t do the job alone. For the next dozen years, Aggie pursues her extraordinary goal: to gather a team of nine talented, dedicated people who want to be heroes.
Number one on that roster is Aggie’s remarkable grandfather, Bernie. His indomitable spirit–undaunted by personal tragedy and a sometimes-terrifying handicap–is key to the realization of Aggie’s dreams.
The Borkowskis’ story spans five decades, from Korea’s Demilitarized Zone to the high-tech minefield of life in the 21st Century, including a sojourn in that fearful place called middle school. With Bernie’s loving guidance, Aggie develops exceptional coping skills, all the while facing the conventional challenges of growing up and finding true love.
Aggie is just one girl trying to make a small difference…but like Bernie taught her, “A good deed is never too small.”
I loved Diana Laurence’s book How To Catch and Keep a Vampire, so I was glad when she asked me to review this book.
Aggie and her grandpa had a very precious relationship. She was lucky to get to spend so much time with him. I could tell how much he really loved her too. He never just left her. He took her with him when he went somewhere. Aggie knew she was lucky that she got to live with her grandfather. He has a few surprises in store too! He is quite an amazing person!
I really liked Aggie. Diana Laurence did an awesome job building her and her grandfather’s characters. They were people that could be someone that you know. They really came to life for me. She had so many dreams and she wasn’t afraid to follow them. That is really a great lesson. Sometimes we get caught up in life and forget about dreams and what we can do to better our life or better the lives of others. She really is an inspiration.
I recommend this book!
