Yo, Miss – A Graphic Look at High School takes the reader inside Wildcat Academy, a second chance high school in New York City where all the students are considered at-risk. Through strong and revealing black and white images, the book tells the story of eight students who are trying to get that ticket to the middle class – a high school diploma. Whether they succeed or not has as much to do with what happens outside the classroom as in, and the value of perseverance is matched by the power of a second chance. It is a story that shows these teens in all their beauty, intelligence, suffering, humor, and humanity (and also when they are really pains in the behind.) A view from the trenches of public education, Yo, Miss challenges preconceptions about who these kids are, and what is needed to help them graduate.

After a 90-day course to take her from computer programmer to math teacher, Victoria Rivas told her students at one point, "[I] believed I could quit my corporate job and come teach you guys something." However, her inner-city middle school Numeracy students could not multiply or read an analog clock, let alone deal with fractions and percents. Students who failed 6th grade were passed on to 7th grade because there was no room in 6th. As she dealt with pregnant 7th graders, fire drills at twenty below zero, food fights, and police officers dragging students off in handcuffs, the administration was more intent on good behavior than learning. Instead of saving "inner city students from themselves," she had to save her sanity and her self-esteem, and still learn to teach.

At the tender age of six months, Mattie Rose and Annie Lizbeth Radley are left behind by their mother who prefers to seek greener, unencumbered pastures. Nine years later, these bright and high-spirited twins are ready to enter fifth grade and conquer new challenges. Supported by the love of their wise and practical grandmother, and the guidance of their hard-working, loyal father, the twins' tenth year is filled with fun, childhood foolishness, as well as an awakening to the realities of a more complicated world. This is a poignant story of childhood innocence, resilience, the drive to overcome hardship, and the acceptance of bitter truth. It is the story of family, and the unbreakable bonds of sisterly love.

Young children often experience anxiety when they are separated from their mothers or fathers. This newest title in The Way I Feel series features a young guinea pig who expresses her distress when her mother and father go away. “Missing you is a heavy, achy feeling. I don’t like missing you. I want you right now!” Eventually the little guinea pig realizes that sometimes she and her parents can’t be together. When that happens, she knows that others can help. “They can snuggle with me or we can play. It helps me to be warm and close to someone. They remind me that you’ll be back.” This is a fixed-format ebook, which preserves the design and layout of the original print book.
