|In Stock. 5-7 business days|
Billy Winters is just your average Boston teenager. Well, maybe he likes comic book hero Red Valor a little too much, but that doesn't interfere with his fast-food job at BurgerLand or his current crush on beautiful redhead Isabelle Corbett. One fateful day, however, Billy becomes something better than average.
A fire breaks out at BurgerLand, and Billy channels Red Valor to rescue a co-worker. He instantly becomes a media darling and is branded a hero. Billy basks in the limelight for as long as it lasts-which isn't long at all. People are moving on to the next big thing, the next headline, and Billy doesn't like it one bit.
Billy knows he's been a hero all his life, and if people won't recognize that on their own, then he'll just have to show them again.
A mixture of drama, action, and suspense, "Headline" follows the paths of a troubled adolescent who will do anything for glory and the newspaperman who is responsible for Billy's downward spiral. Inevitably the salvation of both their souls will come down to a single decision: an act of desperation and madness that will define true heroism.
