The third book in the 'Jericho' series proves to be the most satisfying of the three as it tackles school dynamics, friendships, and senior year of high school.

Just Another Hero is a quite interesting slice-of-life/mystery story that does not require you to read the first two books, which is good.
It’s a fairly tame novel at first, then things ramp up with a terrible stepfather, a medication addiction, and a thief. And near the end, there is someone holding a classroom hostage with an AK-47 (That’s not spoilers because it says so in the description). I like how the narrative jumps between two characters, both with their own issues, but with a lot of relevance to the story, in a way so it rarely feels jarring.
With a 4.5 out of 5, I would definitely recommend it to someone who wants something interesting. You don’t even have to read the predecessors.
