This book tells the story about a public school teacher's controversial and dangerous journey, of over 11 years, in the New York City Department of Education. Simone Gray begins as a young, enthusiastic, professional and good teacher. She soon discovers that her natural rapport with students and excellent teaching abilities are not enough to survive in the dysfunctional, chaotic, perilous and deadly environment in the South Bronx public schools. Sex, violence, cruelty, theft and various other types of abuse are often common occurrences at school. The readers will be riveted by places that most won?t see or experience. Reading this book is like taking an emotional roller coaster ride. The students, staff and administrators never cease to be compelling subjects in a very powerful and tragic chronicle.
