Review quote

" Erin is a true inspiration and an example of the extraordinary difference one person can make in the world. She continues to transform the lives of students across the country through her work and The Freedom Writers Foundation." -- Hilary Swank, two-time Academy Award winner " Ms. G., as the kids called her, embraced a concept that has been lost in modern life: writing can make pain tolerable, confusion clearer, and the self stronger." -- Anna Quindlen, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and author of the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Rise and Shine " " The examples of Erin Gruwell' s success as a high school English teacher in Long Beach, California, aren' t mounted on posterboard or bound in a notebook. They walk and talk and tell their stories of academic and personal redemption brought on by a preppy suburbanite who used pop culture to reach gang- and poverty-scarred inner city kids." -- Ed Hayward, "Boston Herald"
