    My literary hero is Jean Valjean from _Les Miserables_. I admire him because even though he had terrible misfortunes in his early life, he was able to find forgiveness for his persecutors (especially Javert) and turn his life into something worthwhile. Valjean was a very selfless person. He was always aware of the poor, and he cared for a poor sick woman until she died; when she died, he took in her daughter and raised her as his child. Another instance is when Valjean learned that someone mistaken for him was going to prison in his place. Valjean turned himself into the police so that the innocent man would not suffer in his place.

    Whit and Whisty Allgood (from Witch and Wizard) I love the book series and think they are clever.

    My hero is my grandma, because she was a kind person to everyone she met and was always someone I could talk to. I look up to her so much, in her lifetime she was able to overcome so many obstacles and I cherish the moments I got to spend with her. One of the major obstacles was Alzheimer’s Disease, somedays she would forget my name or that I was her granddaughter, but she never forgot how much I loved her. Unfortunately, last December she passed away, so now I have my hero always watching over me. This is why my grandmother is my hero.
