Neilann T edited the summary of Bronx Masquerade Monday, October 11, 2010.
Mr. Ward's high school English class bonds as a group when they begin sharing their free verse poems on Open Mike Fridays. The reader will learn the dreams, plans, and history of the eighteen students in class through the poetry they share as Tyrone Bittings' thoughts in between the short chapters act as the "glue" to connect the classmates to each other. Their poetry goes beyond "the masquerade." Powerful book for high school students and would make a great choice for a book club.
