An utterly engrossing tale about the way that Washington, DC has failed America's students. Harper's writing draws the reader in as she twines and intertwines a cast of characters that ring as true as true could be. It might sound like a cliche but I could not put this book down. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who has a student, is connected to academia, or who just plain cares about corruption in Education. If I could give it 10 stars , I would!
