This book is very thought provoking for those that may wonder what life is like for people outside of their social caste. Those "folks" that the author eludes to are people too. They have their own fears, hopes and dreams. That is until systems and circumstances cause many of them to abandon all hope. Teachers are in a unique position to see what is happening to our youth. They have an opportunity as the descriptions says, "...to save the world" of at least their own classroom. I say our youth, because as an American, the children of America are all "our" youth. To have a strong nation, we need a strong foundation. Entire generations of school children can be lost and fall through the cracks. A "Fearless" but human superhero teacher could go a long way. I think the author wanted to call attention to problems in the school system, but to do it in a more way more like story telling than laying out facts and statistics like John Taylor Gatto or Charlotte Iserbyt. Overall its a fun read. I would recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Honea Byrne's "0" is remarkably original by comparison to many newer independent authors. Mixing a superhero with a narrative that at times reads like William S. Burroughs, and exploring topics including substance abuse the public school system among others, Honea's novel is truly one of a kind. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful?
