The reason this book isn't rated on Goodreads is because the author is known to stalk and harass people online for leaving negative reviews. This is a self-serving story by a narcissist. If you want to know some of my problems with the book read my thoughts on the previous TMT post. It's too bad, too, because I loved their writing style.

I loved and adored The Poet X, and With the Fire On High, so I was sure this book would delight me, too, and it did! This was another Summer in the City read for me. Again, the author narrated audiobook is the way to go.

I was extremely excited to read this book and instantly added it to my list of books to buy for the community center, but with only three or four good stories it was a big disappointment. Too many of the stories were about getting a girlfriend (you all know how I feel about sexual tension in MG) and having expensive clothes, and quite a few of the stories were about thirteen year old seventh graders. I began to think that the editor had mixed up the terms "Middle Grade" and "middle school," but there was also a fair share of stories about elementary school aged characters. Most of the stories seemed amateurish.

This is a quick, easy to understand informative book about racism. There were a lot of images included. I would recommend this as a precursory read to other more in-depth books about racism. The author talks about racism in other counties, not just the US, and about the different forms racism takes on.

Next month is Dog Days of Summer and this book is an ARC, so it will be my first August read.
