It's very readable, and she was an excellent teacher with wonderfully inventive and caring ways to teach and reach her students. But apparently she didn't edit her book, because, as those of you who are or were English teachers or copy editors will notice, there are a number of grammatical errors and one or two vocabulary errors. I had to smile as I refrained from correcting them. There is some obscenity and profanity, but the value of reading this book should far outweigh any discomfort caused by reading the words. The counter counted only 147--they are fairly few and far between, so I didn't mark it Adult but but the warning in the long synopsis. The book is very readable, I haven't seen the movie or read the original book written by the students, The Freedom Writers Diary. It is in the collection--submitted by The New York Times--Carrie? It may have been a best-seller, but I don't know. Scanned by Anastasia. G.Cindy ____________________________________________________________________________________ Be a better pen pal.
