About the Author

Sharon Myrick grew up in the Deep South, trying to figure out why she was not the image of a white southern belle. School was no help in understanding that problem, or any other, until a college professor finally taught her to think. After her doctoral work in the sociology of education, Sharon’s passion became teaching, and over the course of eighteen years she experienced every level of school, preschool through college. Related work experiences, managing community educational programs for thirteen years, revealed how change is possible through an “it takes a village” approach. When not tending her Virginia mountain cabin or engaging in local political concerns, Myrick contributes to the school change movement by listening to current high school students speak about their personal needs and new ways school could help them (www.schooltaleslive.com). She loves to hear from kindred spirits who want to connect with the national discussion of school transformation

I would first like to thank Netgalley as well as She Writes Press for the chance to read this in early in exchange for an honest review. I want to love every single book that I read but sometimes I think the reader and the book just do not mix and I believe that is what happened with me and this book. There were many things to like about this book, each story held my interest to a certain extent but there was just something about these characters that I just could not really care about as much as I wanted. For me characters in books become my friends and even my enemies once in a while. lol! I tend to cry along with them and laugh as well but there was just something a bit wooden about the kids in this book. Don't get me wrong, Sharon Myrick is a good writer and I plan to read by her but this was just not as good as I wanted it to be.
