This book does violate at least one of the criteria because it was originally written in 1998, but that doesn’t matter. It is still relevant today. This book was very engaging and provides connections to pedagogy, learning styles, racism, poverty, religion, persistence, and opportunities provided by wealth and class. From the perspective of a faculty member, it gave me a lot to think about with respect to my own teaching and the assumptions I make about “prior knowledge.” I think students would really connect to this book. You really want Cedric to succeed and get pulled along watching him grow and change. The positive ending is very inspiring.
