Thank you Net Gallery for letting me not only read this book but allowing me to review it. Above is my honest opinion.
Matthew Rockwood takes the reader from the enthusiastic start of James’ teaching career, a shift from the legal world, as James decides he wants to do something more with while than practicing law in a large corporate firm. His enthusiasm and resolve are tested as he comes up against the realities of public school education in a large urban system.
Eye-opening and heart wrenching, this novel provides a glimpse into the world of a failing NYC school and the lives of the people doing what they do to get by and, sometimes, to do their best in a seemingly hopeless and frustrating situation.
The author makes you feel compassion for his students, as the bleakness of their situation becomes clear, and empathy for the teachers, whose efforts to make change, and reach students are unwelcome, and stifled.
