Eleven-year-old Tilly saved the lives of 100 people in Thailand because she knew the warning signs of a tsunami. Ten-year-old Jean-Dominic won a battle against pesticides - and the cancer they caused in his body. Fifteen-year-old Malika fought against segregation in her Alabama town. Six-year-old Ryan raised over one million dollars to drill water wells in Africa. And thirteen-year-old Bethany, a competitive surfer, lost her left arm (and almost her life) to a shark, but got back on her surfboard.

In all, Real Kids, Real Stories, Real Change profiles 30 multicultural kid heroes in five areas:
Kids Saving the Environment
Kids Standing Up for Themselves
Kids Helping Others
Kids Overcoming Challenges
Kids Using Talents and Creativity

As young readers meet these boys and girls from around the globe, they may wonder,
What kind of hero lives inside of me?
