need a book rec for a school project. Criterium :

Has to be a novel
Has to have no movie, video game, tv, etc. Adaptions
Has to be able to BS the plot into a Hero's Journey (showcasing qualities of a hero)

Just in case, here are some basic guidelines for heroic qualities....

hero gives life to something bigger than himself
hero performs a courageous act, either physical or spiritual.
hero who feels something is lacking in the normal experience of society
hero moves out of his own conventional life to undertake the journey
hero's journey usually consists of departure, fulfillment and return.
hero embarks on a series of adventures to recover what is lost or to discover some life giving information.

Do ender's game. that book is awesome. or ender's shadow, or any of the sequels.

You could read a black company novel, they're by glen cook, very entertaining.
