it was amazing

I had a difficult time finding this book. I went as far as emailing the author. He emailed me back stating that Scholastic is no longer publishing his book so he is trying to get it published himself. He offered to send me his original manuscript as long as I didn't share it with anyone. A friend located the book for me at a suburban library, and the librarian said that it hasn't been taken out in 4 years. I read this book in a couple of hours. I couldn't stop reading. I needed to know the secret!! I think this is a great read for students. It touches on racial discrimination as well as abuse in the home. However, it's not really graphic. It's appropriate for our students to read.
