Yes, it is very important to have a hero. Everyone needs someone to look up to, and this will give them a goal they want to fulfill.

Jimmi Sixes is the person in this novel who portrays characteristics of a hero. The whole book Jimmi was making things better for Mika and Fatima, by getting them to be friends and heightening their spirits. He also saved Mika's life by pulling Shanelle off of Mika right before she severely hurt her. Then while Mika was injured Jimmi carried her all the way to his cave for safety. He then fixed Mika's injures, and left the cave to see if Shanelle and her gang where still out there. While he was out there he searched for Fatima to make sure she was safe.

There are many reasons for Jimmi to be in the Heroes Hall of Fame. First of all, he united two friends and changed their lives forever. He had people who looked up to him and liked him for who he really was. He also saved Mika's life. She was in a lot of trouble, in a near death situation. He then took the beating of his life for saving Mika. He deserves to be in the Heroes Hall of Fame for every reason possible.
