Bear Grylls – he’s a hero of sorts.Â He chose to live his life on the edge after being inspired by a number of other heroes, and this book brings together those people’s stories.Â True Grit: Junior Edition is abridged from the original, making it suitable for the tween/teen age bracket, and probably some of the more resilient younger folks too.

It’s described as being like The Bell Jar written by Adrian Mole.
