"Cuando Daniel Hernández tenía veinte años, trabajaba como pasante con la congresista Gabrielle Giffords. El 8 de enero de 2011, alguien disparó contra Giffords. La agilidad mental de Daniel le salvó la vida a Giffords hasta que llegaron los paramédicos y la llevaron al hospital. Muchos han reconocido la valentía y heroísmo de Hernández, incluyendo al presidente Barack Obama. Sin embargo, aunque tal vez ese haya sido su momento más visible y de mayor fama, Daniel Hernández es un extraordinario individuo que ha tenido ya muchos logros en su corta vida y se propone conquistar muchos más con su trabajo. En este libro, los lectores conocerán a un joven impresionante que inspirará a muchos adolescentes a realizar sus suenos y conquistar un futuro mejor."--P. [4] of cover.
