Suddenly, something big and white bumps up against the car, and I jump. I think I must be dreamin’, ’cause I just saw a horse run by. When Cole’s mom dumps him in the mean streets of Philly to live with the dad he’s never met, the last thing he expects to see is a horse - let alone a stable full of them. He may not know much about cowboys, but what he knows for sure is that cowboys ain’t black, and they don’t live in the ’hood. But here, horses are a way of life, and soon Cole’s days of skipping school and getting in trouble in Detroit have been replaced by shoveling muck and trying not to get stomped on.

Would you listen to Ghetto Cowboy again? Why?

I am a 4th grade teacher and enjoyed this book myself. Only a couple of "naughty" words. A great story was enhanced by the wonderful verbal performance! Great pick for 5th & 6th grade kids.
