Prove Yourself a Hero
In this tense and thrilling novel about a kidnapping, K. M. Peyton's narrative gives the reader an illuminating insight into the behaviour of different people under stress - the victim, those who care about him, and those who are inflicting harm on him. This popular novel is by Carnegie Medal winning author, K. M. Peyton, who also wrote the best-selling Flambards series. The book was first published in 1977 and owing to its continuing popularity it is now being reissued in a smaller mass-market paperback format.
