    a "must read" book

    In Victim to Hero Jim Laughter portrays Steven Stayner the way he should be portrayed, as a hero. It is a well written book and heartfelt as well.
    In the book "I know my first name is Steven" the author Mike Echols wrote more in depth as far as Steven's friends, the living conditions Steven endured and steven's tough transition to try and fit in with his family. Jim Laughter in this book brings to light the friendship Steven had with Sharon Carr and how she stuck by him as a friend through tough times. It feels good to know that Steven, trying so hard to fit in with both school and at home, had a true friend he could confide in that would not judge or degrade him. Friends like that are hard to come by.
    Jim Laughter also does an excellent job at highlighting the fact how Steven put his life on the line to rescue a little boy. Steven knew that if he were caught by Parnell he would endure the worst punishment ever but that didn't stop him. Parnell was a heartless and sick individual, and I say 'individual' because Parnell isn't worth calling a man or even a human being.
    If Timmy was my little boy I would be forever thankful to Steven and if steven were my son I would be the proudest parent in the world. Steven will forever be remembered as a hero thanks to authors like Mike Echols and Jim Laughter and friends like Sharon Carr that continue to keep his memory and couragous acts alive.
    Steven is gone but not forgotten...his memory will always live on...R.I.P Steven
