Voices from the Heights is an anthology of works from at-risk students at innovative, award-winning North Heights Alternative School in Amarillo, Texas. The stories are often gritty & personal but these young writers are courageous, creative & talented. Read more about this book and school in this article: http: //www.amarillo.com/stories/050408/fea_10069474.shtml Bruce Beck, Am Globe News: Many of the writers in "Voices" found a safe haven at North Heights Alternative School and are not shy about telling how they ended up there and their amazement at what they found when they arrived - a caring, nonjudgmental staff that looks beyond the surface to the potential that lies beneath. The children whose writings populate "Voices" are young single mothers, children of single-parent households, liberals, conservatives, idealists, cynics, pro-President Bushies, anti-President Bushies, drug-users, former drug-users, friends of drug-users, the children of drug-users. They are us.
