When Orange County, Florida, began its Literacy Project in 1994, Kyle set out to instill the lifelong joy of reading into her at-risk middle-school students. She and Janet delved into research and studied classroom approaches. As they reflected on the results, they discovered effective strategies that turn nonreaders into the most avid bookworms: choosing effective resources, helping students establish goals, reading aloud, and more. If you teach young people in third through 12th grade, you won't want to miss this informative book.

"The book is especially valuable because of its focus on students with very low levels of reading, most of whom come from economically disadvantaged, often troubled families. This should be required reading for teachers in grades three through twelve." (Voice of Youth Advocates)
"The book reads like a novel and invites you inside Kyle's classroom where you get to know her, her students, and their struggles and successes." (Florida Reading Quarterly)
