My students need 50 copies of Bronx Masquerade, a meaningful book that will challenge and inspire them!

We need 50 copies of Bronx Masquerade, a meaningful book that will challenge and inspire my students! They will share the stories of the characters, consider their own, and challenge their perspectives. Metacognition is an experience that guides the growing process and this book guides the process.
