My name is Hannie Jacobson. I’m the tough Israeli girl in Hesitant Heroes.
Actually, Team Seven couldn’t make it without me.
I’m the one who made soldiers out of them when we found ourselves trapped in a world of espionage.
I was born in Israel, but my parents and baby sister got killed in a battle when I was six. A group of soldiers and spies raised me, so I know how to act in danger.
So different from my marshmallow friends in Team Seven.
They think I’m tough as nails and I’m glad they think that!!!
But they’re wrong.
Jordan has always been able to see right through me. I don’t know how she does it.
I have to keep up the act though, because I don’t want anyone to see the real me.
They may not like what lives in my heart.
I pretend that my heart can’t be broken but it can. It has been broken – many times.
Jordan says it’s okay to have soft feelings – it’s okay to show people your heart.
I don’t agree. What about you?
Is it easy for you to be the “real” you? Do you let your friends and family see all your flaws? Do you admit that you’re worried or scared?
Jordan does. Her emotions come flowing out all the time. No guessing with that girl!
She says God made each one of us to be an individual.
He loves us and we need to accept love from others.
Easier said than done.
Am I the only one who hides her emotions and pretends to be tough when she’s not?
I know life is different in 2022 than 2062, but I bet teens can still relate.
