Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed poet, novelist, journalist, and educator Nikki Grimes was born and raised in New York City.

Each of the 18 kids in Mr. Ward's inner city classroom has something important to say, but some don't even realize it. Then Mr. Ward begins to have "open mic" poetry slams once a month on Fridays. Young adult listeners will identify with the characters in Bronx Masquerade as they explore questions about life and self-expression.

poorly written

offensive. this book displays people as though they are uneducated victims. it is hard to follow if you have an understanding of grammar. I, personally, do not like any book that depicts any race of people as idiots. this book is the opposite of educational. don't waste you life's moments on it.
