A Hope in the Unseen

Today I bought a book called 'A Hope in the Unseen' by Ron Suskind. It's about the journey of a boy named Cedric Jennings and his experience going to a high school in one on Washington D.C.'s most dangerous neighborhoods. The students in this school are unmotivated and academically undetermined while Cedric stands out for being the opposite. He is one of the few honor students and he is determined to make something of himself and not use his upbringing as an excuse not to do well in the world. I believe my AVID class chose this book for us to read is because it is somewhat relatable and it proves that anyone can strive for the best, work hard, and become successful no matter what their situation is. :)
