An Unexpected Hero

Author(s): L. P. Hansen

NZ - Children - 9 to 14

When 12-year-old Matt Turner goes to stay with his grandparents and swaps the buzz of big city life for a remote rural school, he doesn't think life could get any worse. However, a school project plunges him into a terrible dilemma when he has to make a speech in public. Matt chooses to talk about First World War pacifist and conscientious objector, Archibald Baxter. But is that a good idea in a district where almost every family has lost someone to war?
