Recommended to Jeanne by: Author herself at an Author's Expo
I just finished reading a book that I received for swapping my book, The Fifteen Houses, with another author at the New England Authors Expo 2013.

The problems that plague today's schools are clearly elucidated in this book. It was nice to see a book that didn't sugarcoat the problems and that wasn't afraid to call out certain contributing factors to those problems (e.g. parents).
