This was a cute book from my perspective as a high school teacher. I loved the profiles of the students, who were surprisingly varied individuals, connected by their personal relationships to a game. I never "got" chess, but it's clear that it's more than a game to these kids. It's an identity.

Also, from an education perspective, the details about Murrow High School in Brooklyn were fascinating.
