Book Description

A teen's whole world is turned upside down when he receives a visit from a 19th century dueling master after he wishes for help with his messed up life.

In HOW I LEARNED TO DUEL, STOP BULLIES, and BE A HERO, a middle grade boys' fantasy adventure, fourteen-year-old Charlie, the oldest son of a single parent mother, is responsible for his eight-year-old brother, Manny. So far, Charlie isn't doing too well, what with his mother's mean boyfriend breathing down his neck and his brother about to join a gang.

When a Zorro lookalike who calls himself The Fox, appears and tells Carlos he will help him become a man, Charlie is shocked. The Fox convinces him and together, they navigate the halls of Charlie's school and the streets of New York City, stopping crime and finding excitement. The only problem is, only Charlie can see The Fox, and the gang is closing in on Charlie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine coming-of-age story October 4, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many children, especially those with younger siblings, will be able to relate to this novel. Luke, who is growing up in a dysfunctional home, must find a way to keep his younger brother, Cole, from getting involved in a gang--and things aren't looking too good. That is, until The Fox, a robin hood-like hero from television, arrives.

The Fox serves as a role model for Luke, and Luke's character develops throughout the novel from helpless to responsible and confident. I especially enjoyed the scene in which he gets rid of his mother's abusive boyfriend (I won't spoil how.) Also, normally first person present tense jars me out of a story, but this was written so well that I didn't even notice the tense until Chapter 3. All in all, a read that's well worth the price!
