Hero-Type by Barry Lyga
Feeling awkward and ugly is only one reason sixteen-year-old Kevin is uncomfortable with the publicity surrounding his act of accidental heroism, but when a reporter photographs him apparently being unpatriotic, he steps into the limelight to encourage people to think about what the symbols of freedom really mean.

...funny-but-serious tale of standing up for basic American liberties and revealing long-held secrets will remind some readers of Avi's Nothing But the Truth. Leavened by much humor...this neatly plotted look at what real patriotism and heroism mean will get readers thinking...this talented author...provides a note at the end with some ideas for supporting the troops.
