it was amazing
Read in July, 2011

Kozol has aged well, and I think I liked this better than some of his more famous works. The activism and rage that starts to look ridiculous with time has faded to a mature, more personal portrait of children, and also of his own life. Lyrical, universal, charming, and hopeful, with the perspective of age and the intensely personal good rather than an abstract, and possibly unobtainable view of a utopia, I'd highly recommend this one. The love shines through, rather than the detached journalist/commentator he used to be. His best.
