Golden Sower Young Adult Nominee 2012 2013Woods Brenda A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame New York GP Putnam s Sons 2010 Print This book touches on many serious topics that are issues for many students in urban schools Although the story centers on teens in a creative writing course I am sure that younger students in a high ability group would be able to not only grasp the content in this book but also be able to relate to the characters In the book Carlos is afraid that he will be deported back to Guatemala and in the school I work that is a very real fear for some of my students What I like about this novel as oppose to other similar books is that although the book tells the story of several children it also shows you what the narrator in the story is thinking Ms Hart the teacher of the creative writing course who has her own struggles I think the idea of including the story of the teacher makes students realize that adults are not so different from themselves as they also have struggles in their lives I would use this book as a way of opening up children to the idea of writing autobiographies about their own lives Even high ability learners may be reluctant readers or get bored easily and due to the multiple points of view expressed it may be able to hook a larger audience of readers especially in an urban school where difficult situations present themselves every day
