The Invisible Hero

The Invisible Hero from Australian author Elizabeth Fensham is an intriguing novel about values and friendship. The author tackles themes prevalent in many school arenas - the in/out crowd, fitting in, and ultimately making decisions for yourself. 

Taunton High School's latest project on heroes and villains means that each student in Philip's class must keep a journal as they research their chosen hero. The Invisible Hero takes the format of the snippets from many class members' journals as the weeks progress.

Fensham utilises this intriguing format, expertly delving into each character; what is important to them, the values they rate highly, and the ones they don't. By letting each student speak for themselves Fensham enables the reader to make his or her own judgements. The fascinating range of characters she has created help to create an engaging read.

The subject of heroes and villains enables Fensham to cleverly weave intriguing historical details, re unsung heroes, into the narrative. The imperative question ... what makes a true hero?

With an underlying plot that builds around a mystery hero who emerges within the school community, Fensham's novel has a clear pace and direction to keep many readers hooked.

The Essentials

Publisher Blurb
From award-winning author Elizabeth Fensham comes a book with heart for the hero in us all.

Philip has spent his whole life at school either being invisible or being called stupid. He’s used to being the loner, the odd one out, the boy who lives with his nan.

So when Philip’s class is given a school assignment to write about heroes and villains, the project causes conflict in the classroom as everyone weighs in on the debate.

For the first time, Philip has the opportunity to shine in school - but can he convince the class that being different is not necessarily a bad thing and that heroes have many disguises?
