I'm still longing for books about school shootings, and this collection of stories was written kind of in response to those young adults who stood up after Columbine and pointed out the problems abounding in the public school system.

Those kids were promptly expelled, put into therapy, or silenced for not adhering to the "axis of evil" terminolgy suddenly surrounding the kids who shot up the school. Some of these stories are good, particularly Angela Johnson's "Through A Window," which is quite complex and well formed, and not at all the situational feel good story about getting to know all the freaks in your class and changing your white, popular perspective kind of drivel that opens the collection.

why aren't we still talking about people who shoot up schools? ( )

A wonderful collection of short stories about kids who are "outsiders" which can facilitate some great discussions both in the home and in the classroom. The stories are written by well-known YA authors and many readers, both old and young, will easily relate to the universal situation of those in the "in-group" versus those "on the fringe." ( )
