This is a story rich with authentic period detail and atmosphere, with a delightfully spirited heroine, Hero, 'the toughest girl in London'. Hero's father has been taken away to be sent back to the slave plantation, and Hero has been forced to move in with cruel relations in the East End of London. But Hero's father was a prizefighter, the best in the country, and Hero has inherited his fighting spirit. So when she decides to escape and rescue her father, she's ready to take on anyone who gets in her way...Catherine R Johnson is establishing a name for writing about mixed-race teenagers. "Hero" is published simultaneously with "Stella", a wonderfully gripping story of a mixed-race stage clairvoyant in Victorian London.show more
