Book review

HERO IN DISGUISE? Heroes Don’t Always Wear Capes is the realistic fictional story of school girl, Vandra Zandinski, who discovers the most memorable lessons learned in the classroom might not have anything to do with school at all. As an underdog in life, Vandra worries about school. Each year is filled with surprises in this coming of age story spanning all grade levels. From Vandra’s stint with the nuns in pre-school, to the compassion she receives from her fifth grade teacher when her secret is exposed, the reader discovers there is a little bit of Vandra in all of us. Some of Vandra’s few shining moments come along when one teacher appoints her class secretary for her organizational skills, and another assigns her editor-in-chief of the school newspaper for her budding writing ability, but her math teacher has her scared to death. When a bully comes along in middle school, unexpected help is received from the Vice-Principal, who isn’t so useless after all. The story of this student captures crabby teachers, chaotic family dynamics, and spares no mercy with the trauma of a burned prom dress. Funny and engaging, Heroes Don’t Always Wear Capes is a tale that unfolds the secrets of life chapter by chapter. As Vandra comes to learn, there are teachers, and then there are those who leave an impression on your life through unforgettable lessons, the extraordinary teachers—the heroes. “Ms. Shaffer’s novel captures the everyday struggles and triumphs our children face as they maneuver life’s bumpy road.”—Pam Scott, Principal, Burlingame (CA) School District “An authentic picture of a teacher’s life…whoever went to school will immediately recognize incidents and types of teachers in this spirited book any student will be able to identify with.”—Dr. Robert L. McCaffrey, Superintendent, Galt (CA) School District “Through laughter and tears, this book reminds teachers that we teach…to the heart and soul of our students.” —Jerrianna Boer, Principal, Modesto (CA) School District “Inspiring…humorous…riveting…this book will make you laugh, cry, and reminisce about childhood adventures.”—Kathy Nelson, Teacher, Elk Grove (CA) Unified School District
