Excellent read which was written at an appropriate level for a middle school reader. Couple of things I want to point out. If you are going to allow your middle schooler to read it, read it with them because the topic is a very difficult topic, but not one that should not be discussed. Secondly, the "N" word is used frequently (apprapro to the time) in the book. I must admit, I did have a hard time with that in a book targeted towards middle schoolers, but again, something that I feel would be subject of discussions with our youth on the inappropriateness of such a disgusting word.

I ended up downloading this to my Nook Touch. If you decide to read the book, invest in the print version. I think there important pictures that didn't show up on my Nook. Plus the formatting was kind of goofy.
