"There Are No Children Here" by Alex Kotiowitz

"A World Not Seen By Many"  4 stars
There Are No Children Here is an extraordinary book about living in the projects of Chicago.  This book is dated since this project got knocked down years ago, but it does not make the story any less relevant.  It's about two boys, Lafeyette and Pharoah, and their families living day to day just trying to survive.  You get into this story quick and stay there.  It's a good read.  I recommend it.

Excellent book. It was required reading when I was in college. I wish all teacher ed. programs mandated such reading.
