My students are the girl next door and the hooded sloucher on the corner, the homecoming king and the earnest fan wishing the next Dr. Who is a ginger. They live in a community hit hard by the housing market's recession, and the attendant stresses are theirs: the cramped homes, the parents working two or three jobs, the lure of drugs and alcohol, the chaos. But the crowded hallways of our large public high school, squatting between cornfields at the barest edge of the city's suburbs, are full of laughter, the chatter of dreamers who still believe that their "once upon a time" is coming. What they need are novels that will keep those dreams alive by showing them that all stories are beautiful, that each narrative matters, that hope can be found in a simple string of sentences reminding us we are not alone.
