12 different narrative perspectives plus the author's own take on the plight of urban Natives. One of my colleagues assigned this to his 10th graders so I thought I might as well read it too. Glad I did.

Certainly puts Oakland on the map. There's a there there now. The California Dream as nightmare: everybody living on their own little island.
