Benjie, a young African American boy who lives in an inner-city ghetto, resists his parents and school counselors and the guidance they offer. He tries heroin for the first time and becomes addicted. After some misguidance from his friends, he eventually decides to quit because of his stepfather. ( )

This excellent book chronicles the story of 13 year old Benji's spiraling addiction to heroin and his inability to accept that he has a problem. The story is told from multiple views, including Benji, his stepfather, his mother, grandmother, friends, teachers, and even his drug dealer. It is a relatively realistic depiction of addiction and does not sugar coat. In the end everything does not turn out wonderfully, as often happens in books on teenage addiction. It is a wonderful book, probably for reluctant readers, ages 13-17 most likely will appeal. It is short and relatively easy to read, although it is written in some dialogue so it needs a little practice to get used to the lingo at first. ( )

This book is told in the first person from various characters point of view. The focus of the book is on Benji a thirteen year old heroin addict. The story follows along as his family and teachers try to get him clean. The story ends without anyone really knowing it Benji is going to stay clean or not. I would recommend this book to teens ages 14-16. ( )

This book was written in the early seventies and is pretty dated now, both in the attitudes of the characters and the way they talk. Modern-day high school kids may find it hard to relate to and I, a white girl from suburbia, found the Ebonics hard to understand.

However, the book definitely has its merits. I was impressed with the author's ability to create a multitude of narrators, none of them sounding too much like the other. The author also did an excellent job establishing the setting (which is why the book is so dated now) and the family love and friendship still shine. The ambiguous ending was well done, and those can be tricky. I would still recommend this for young adults, but in context -- perhaps in conjunction with other books set in the same period, or as part of a school unit covering civil rights and the black power movement of the sixties and seventies.

What you must understand is that this book is not really about drugs. Rather, it's about the affect Benjie's heroin addiction has on his family, his friends and his teachers. If you want to read about drugs, read Crank. (You should anyway; that's an awesome book.) If you want to read about the struggles of a working-class urban black family in the late sixties or seventies, read A Hero Ain't Nothin But a Sandwich. ( )

A Hero Ain't Nothin' but a Sandwich is a novel about a teen Junkie named Benjie. Benjie thinks he can stop using drugs whenever he wants to, but what he doesn't realize is that he's hooked. His family, friends, and teachers share their accounts on living with a teen junkie. They're watching Benjie go from a responsible young man, to a deceiving dope head. They see Benjie's potential downfall, and his silent cry for help. ( )
