Overview

For the first time, living legends and

popular heroes tell teens how they

survived their adolescence

When they were 11 and 14, respectively, brothers Robert and William Hatch embarked on an

ambitious project: to discover how many of their heroes dealt with the challenges of early

adolescence. The result is The Hero Project, a fascinating collection of interviews with some of the

most prominent names in sports, science, politics, entertainment, the arts, and religion.

From dealing with bullies to overcoming health problems, feeling lonely and different to growing up

in a broken home, what they thought of the world around them to their own heroes and role models,

these luminaries share their candid recollections of life as a teen and offer young readers advice

on how to grow up to be heroes themselves. In addition to the interviews, each chapter contains a

brief biography of the selected interviewee, along with the fascinating back story of how the brothers

made contact with the hero in question.

Heroes of The Hero Project:

Pete Seeger, Madeleine L’Engle, Florence Griffith Joyner,

Jimmy Carter,Orson Scott Card,Yo Yo Ma, Elouise Cobell,

Carroll Spinney, Desmond Tutu, Lance Armstrong and

Linda Kelly Armstrong, Steven Wozniak, Dolores Huerta,

and Jackie Chan

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Over 12 years ago, two teen brothers began an interview project. The result is this book, which consists of conversations with 13 of their heroes. Each chapter begins with a brief summary of the person's life and accomplishments and a description of how the meeting came about and ends with the interview. The selections are candid and thoughtful, with the boys asking questions about political and spiritual beliefs as well as queries about childhood heroes and family pets. Both writers are intelligent and well spoken, but their tone is often mature beyond their years, making it difficult for young readers to relate. Lance Armstrong, Jackie Chan, Madeleine L'Engle, and Orson Scott Card will appeal to a wide audience. Other contributors will be less familiar, such as Dolores Huerta, Elouise Cobell, and Carroll Spinney. Even though the popularity levels of the heroes chosen is mixed, the entire collection is of high quality, and those who pick it up for the celebrity appeal may learn a little something extra.-Michelle Roberts, Merrick Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Great Book For Teens and Preteens

    I was very impressed with these young teens ability to achieve interviews with such notables as Jimmy Carter, Lance Armstrong, Desmond Tutu, etc. As an adult I enjoyed reading a biography and an interview each day. Each one gave me much food for thought and much enjoyment. I would highly recommend it for school libraries and for gifts for teens. It was extremely well written. Both Will and Rob Hatch emerge as heros in their own right for what they accomplished with 'The Hero Project'.

    A Great Book for Teens and Everyone Else

    This book will inspire teens who are wondering what to do with their lives and how to reach their goals and will bring warmth to the heart of every reader, regardless of age. Not only are the stories of the process of obtaining the interviews fascinating, but the questions and answers of the interviews themselves are genuinely memorable.
