    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. We had to read this for school. Personally I didn’t like it. The focus of like everyone is equal sort of thing is good. But it had basically no CLIMAX. That’s what would’ve made this a good book. A larger more surprising climax because we knew it was Macca Sam and Charlie that threw the flame in the house. I do however like the set up. Like the different point of views. Very nice.

    Loved this book! It's my daughter's Year 7 book and it is great for that age. Made me think a lot as well. I was a little disappointed with the ending - it felt all a little too predictable, especially for a story that dealt with some good issues and behaviours. Loved this book!

    This is one of the books I like best, it was in my school library and I read it, it is amazing, the characters are relatable and it offers a unique perspective on the term hero and villain. Throughout the book you see each of the characters develop and show their true colours. Phillip is the best character, I am also dyslexia and I found it amazing that an author could place a dyslexic character in a book and have him so real. I highly recommend this book. It is worth the read

    The Invisible Hero was a unique concept, but seemed overused by the end. It was a little too stereotypical for my tastes. All the characters seemed to fit within a certain base and none of them had personalities/traits outside their given stereotype. We have the generous losers, the horrible popular kids, the new girl who people either hate/love, and random kids scattered around without extra personalities. That said, I did enjoy the format of this book, although I doubt ninth graders would write The Invisible Hero was a unique concept, but seemed overused by the end.

That said, I did enjoy the format of this book, although I doubt ninth graders would write about their life problems in a book. It’s unusual for them to reveal so much –I’m speaking as a ninth grader myself. I wouldn’t have written half the things they would’ve, but that’s just me. Also, they all seemed like fifth graders rather than any older age. Maybe that’s why it was hard to connect with them, because that kind of “popular-versus-loser” happens, in my experience, only in younger age-groups than older ones. Regardless, this book did make me think a little. Definitely not the best I’ve ever read, but it’s tolerable.

    The Invisible Hero is a novel about a school class who is doing a research project about heroes and villains. Each student has to pick a hero or a villain and research them. They each have their own opinions, and views on what makes a hero and a villain, and it is fascinating to hear from all the different points of view, and it gives you some interesting thoughts on heroism.

As the story progresses, we find that there are actually many heroes in their neighbourhood, and even in the school, as they inspire each other, and contemplate what makes a hero. This was a really interesting book that makes you think about heroism, and what it really takes to be a hero. It was really good to read about all the different perspectives on what a hero is. I just really enjoyed this book because it made me think about something different, and reading from all the different points of view was really fascinating, because you can see how these peoples perception of what a hero is helps make them who they are.

    How do I write a review for this amazing, troubling, perfect and horrifying book? I guess what glued me in first was that I could identify characters with myself, my family and my school community. The bully, the loners, the outsiders, the newbie, the happy-go-lucky and the confused.

    Fantastic. Best book I read this year. Should be compulsory reading for kids 11 years and up. I really liked the mix of characters. I think there is someone there that anybody could relate too. The writing style is eloquent but accessible. The style is similar to Morris Gleitzman. I laughed, I cried and really enjoyed myself. People will a lot about historical characters, but more importantly you learn about yourself. Fantastic!

    In the end this book became really interesting i actually enjoyed reading it, this book wasn't a book i would pick up if i didn't have to read it for school but it was a book that really opened up my eyes to a lot of different people in the world and helped me learn to respect those people in a whole new way. Another really cool thing was that it was written by a women in Melbourne that lives some what close to me. :) Definitely recommend if your looking for a heart touching kind of read.

    This was good book. It wasn't very interesting at the start of the book, but in the second half it became really inspiring. I enjoyed it as it shows you to be yourself and to stand up for yourself and that is something that some people find hard. I would recommend this book to people aged 13-15 years old.

    It is probably the teacher in me that loves this story, and cringes in many places. Themes include: bullying, fitting in, belonging, heroes, villians, school, family, consequences, standing up for what you believe in, history. Journal/diary entries by each character build great pictures of them and their lives.

    I read this book in a day, but it was so good. It is a great message for bullying and it touched my heart. I recommend it highly and it is now one of my favorites, and I hope the whole world reads it, it is honestly an awesome book.

    A really clever structure; many people will be hooked into the plot-line. However, it can be very slow paced -- it is sprinkled with trivia every now and then. There's also a great, satisfying ending to this fine novel. A really clever structure; many people will be hooked into the plot-line.

    Written in the form of a class's journals as they undertake research for a project on heroes and villians, this is a powerful look at both school life and bullying.

    This book really explains and lets you see into the minds of teens today. Great read. Enjoyed every bit. But found the ending a bit more interesting than the start of the book.

    Didn't really enjoy this book that much. I might have enjoyed it more if I just read it normally, instead of having to analyse it for a term for school. Didn't really enjoy this book that much.

    This book started off slow it did not pick up until near the ending. I enjoyed reading the book in the journal format with All the different opinions.

    Great read and clever format. Author steadily built each character's personality and you couldn't help but dislike some and empathise with others. I think this would make a good novel study!
