I loved this book. It has a bit of everything in it, and parts of it will seem like they’re speaking directly each and every one of its readers--much like the Tupac songs that the girls adore. Before reading this book, I knew next to nothing about Tupac except that he was killed young and we have a book of his poems in our library. Now, however, I’m inspired to learn more. For someone to have had that much of an effect on a generation of kids...it’s truly amazing.
Highly recommended for grades 7-10.
