Ms. B.'s impressions and comments on the summer reading books from summer 2008... This is another place to look if you are looking for a book to read.
"Bronx Masquerade" by Nikki Grimes (click for my response)

The poems and stories of a group of kids in an inner city high school. Their English teacher starts an "open mike" poetry project and they learn a lot about themselves and others.

"Miracle's Boys" by Jacqueline Woodson (click for my response)

Three boys whose mother died are trying to keep their family together. Tyree gave up college and Charlie is getting sucked into a gang.

"The Skin I'm In" by Sharon Flake (click for my response)

Maleeka has a hard time in middle school-her grades are slipping, her classmates tease her for having dark skin and her mom sews all of her clothes (badly). A new teacher is on her case, too.
