it was amazing
bookshelves: ya
Recommended for: teachers, students, philosophy students, anyone exiting a cult
Read in January, 2004

a friend of mine gave this book to me who taught it to her 5th grade class, but i totally wanted to use it in my philosophy and education courses for undergrads. lowry deals with so many difficult themes around socialization and community development-- a smart look at what Plato's republic might have looked like...?
