We Could Be Heroes
True. Hank Hudson almost burned down the whole school—but it wasn’t his fault. He was only trying to destroy the sad book his teacher wouldn’t stop reading, and that was only because the story kept sucking him into the scary autism place that shatters his body, making everything spikey, heavy and overwhelming.
But newcomer Maisie Huang doesn’t know that. For her, Hank’s infamous deed is proof that Hank is just the kid to help her steal her neighbor’s dog, Booler, who remains chained day and night to a tree. Working together Hank and Maisie create a friendship that stretches them both, a friendship born of difference, imagination, and a commitment to being the heroes of not only Booler’s story, but their own.
We Could Be Heroes will be published by Atheneum Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. Coming February 25, 2020.
