    I feel so empowered and important

    As a 13 year old 8th grader I feel as if this book truly is inspirational. Knowing that a first grader can live this life and still get a good education is amazing. There were so many threats and terrifying things that happened to Ms.Bridges and for to keep fighting, it’s outstanding. We may not be the same age or go through the same thing, but she truly is one of my hero’s. I even believe that she could beat Superman in a fight. I believe that it’s important for African American children to read this book. I believe that they should read anything that deals with what happens to us and what had to be sacrificed for us to live the life we do. This book was like a wake up call for me, it’s important to not only do good in school but to not get caught up in drugs. To not be apart of the statistic of what the world portrays us to be. I want to make my mom and dad proud, but while doing so I want to be proud to be a female African American. I want to be proud of me. This book really snaps you out of it. I now know what I have to do and why I would do it. So thank you.
