The Hero's Journey

A Selection of Books

Since we believe the hero's journey can be found everywhere, we're recommending a number of books for our middle read selection.

Book Recommendations

Because Circe is a retelling of Homer's Odyssey, we are encouraging our Lakeshore readers to read or reread this text. However, we are also recommending books that explore the hero's journey in different ways such as Miles Morales: Spiderman by Jason Reynolds, Superman: Dawnbreaker by Matt de la Pena, and Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke.
