The Street is a cutting edge young adult novel about friendship, family loyalty, race relations, the power of the media, and a controversy that occurs when a city council changes the name of a small town street to honor Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., despite the townspeople's voiced concerns and suggestions for bigger and better honors. Critics are hailing The Street as "an Iggie's House for the 21st century." The Street is a meaningful, thought-provoking novel for young people that will encourage social consciousness, concern for others, courage and independent thinking, and will highlight the importance of responsible journalism, responsible service and conduct on the part of leaders and elected officials, and the need for improved racial harmony in our world. A "must have" for every family's bookshelf!
