This book, written from an at-risk child’s perspective, is pointed and powerful. Every educator in America would benefit from reading this book. It is a must-read for all school principals, teachers, counselors and university students. It will challenge, encourage, convict, and convince the reader using the simplistic views of a 9-year-old boy. His picture is priceless and his comments are provoking. The feedback on this book has been outstanding!
