Overview
Valerie longs for a hero-someone to rescue her, someone like her childhood idol Xena, Warrior Princess. Hero Worship is a collection of linked stories that follow Valerie's search for love and connection in a world that feels dangerous. As Valerie approaches adulthood, she must grapple with a mysteriously ill mother, the discovery of a clandestine relationship between her teenage step-sister and an older man, a Christian roommate obsessed with home-makeover TV, and the looming memory of an ex-girlfriend. From a stint selling ice cream on a bicycle in Toronto to a visit to Dolly Parton's theme park, Valerie must figure out how to reconcile her reality with the childlike hope that someone else will save her. Hero Worship explores the many facets of relationships between women-sexual, romantic, platonic, maternal, and some of the things in-between.
