Read in November, 2008

I read this book for an english class and was not looking forward to begining it. The first chapter began with talking about "sewage-covered streets" and a murder that occured behind the local school. Who would really want to read about that? I d known from reading the book's description that the book would be about the "not so great" schools in America, but I had no idea how "not so great" they really were.
As I read on, I found the book more and more interesting. It really opened my eyes to just how bad some schools are. It made me think about just how lucky I and the other students who attend my school are. I know I would not have voluntarily read this book, or even known about the book, without it being an assignment, but I'm glad I did. It was extremely intersting and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good,interesting, nonfiction book.
