The student had a loaded gun and a room full of hostages. Police surrounded the school. Then Ruben Ortega got mad... It was the middle of winter, and the woman had no shoes. Frank Daily looked down at his Nikes and made a decision... The house was filled with smoke and fames. And Melinda Clark couldn't find her little brother... Andrew Holleman had practically grown up on the wetlands. He loved its plants, creatures, and gooey mud. Then he heard about the developer's plan... Norvell Smith knew there would be gang members in the audience. But she looked right at them and gave them a piece of her mind... As fun to read as fiction, these exciting true stories prove that anyone, at any age, in any life circumstance, can make a difference in the world - including you. Meet young people of all ages who take social action, fight crime, work to save the environment, and even perform heroic acts.
