By: Jerry Spinelli
Age Level: 9-12
Reading Level: Independent Reader

Just like other kids, Zinkoff rides his bike, hopes for snow days, and wants to be like his dad when he grows up. But Zinkoff also raises his hand with all the wrong answers, trips over his own feet, and falls down with laughter over a word like "Jabip."

And one winter night, Zinkoff's differences show that any name can someday become "hero."
