did not like it
bookshelves: african-american, male, voices, urban
Read from May 18 to 19, 2011

There were only a few pieces that I enjoyed. The light spotlighting dyslexia and how many students have gotten good and faking their ability to read to cover their disability and I also enjoyed the scenes with teachers and the students' perspectives on their education. But what I didn't like, far outweighed what I did. The flow was atrocious, the Tolliver twins seemed to not have a purpose or place (or maybe I just didn't care), and there wasn't as much discussion of double dutch as I would have liked.

Overall, not anywhere close to being a true Draper book.
