Publisher's Summary

They were called the Class from Hell - 34 inner-city sophomores she inherited from a teacher who'd been "pushed over the edge". She was told "those kids have tasted blood. They're dangerous."

But Louanne Johnson had a different idea. Where the school system saw 34 unreachable kids, she saw young men and women with intelligence and dreams. When others gave up on them, she broke the rules to give them the best things a teacher can give - hope and a belief in themselves.

Critic Reviews

"Remarkable...Johnson proves that unorthodox methods can turn a problem kid into an 'A' student." (Vogue)

Love the book and the movie

I’ve always loved the movie adaptation of this novel but never got the chance to read it. I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook even if it’s a little on the short side
