Why I liked this title:

Stenny wants to be brave, smart, and well-liked by the kids at school. He is overweight, not very good at sports, and he is picked on by the class bully. The Hindenburg, a giant airship, is coming to Stenny's hometown and he can't wait to see it. Disaster strikes when the Hindenburg crashes and Stenny is called upon to help with the disaster. Can he be brave and help the people who are hurt?
