Description

Editorial Reviews From School Library Journal Grade 8-10-Andre Anderson spends his summer playing basketball with his pals and working at a magazine, where he is assigned to write an article dealing with race. As an African American, the teen is reluctant to take on this subject as his first assignment, but he comes to think about it more deeply and writes an explosive piece. In fact, the article stirs such passions that a group of racists assault him, smashing his hand and sending him to the hospital. At the novel's end, Andre has recovered and is lauded for his courage and talent. At its best (especially in the first part), the novel captures the details of everyday life and the sometimes rough talk of teenagers. However, the second part becomes rather didactic and fuzzy. It would have helped, for example, to know more of the content of Andre's article and what made it so controversial. And it is doubtful that the thugs who attacked him would have been so stirred by something that appeared in what seems to be a rather sophisticated magazine-the written word doesn't have much influence on that type of guy. Finally, as the novel progresses, Andre becomes less of a well-rounded character and more of a cardboard "hero." It all adds up to a story that, despite some good moments, never manages to take off.

Review Full of action, humor, tragedy and inspiration.
