"Yo Miss" takes readers inside Wildcat Academy, a second-chance high school in New York City where all the students are considered at-risk. Strong and revealing graphics tell the story of eight students who are trying to get that ticket to the middle class: a high school diploma. Whether they succeed or not has as much to do with what happens outside the classroom as in, and the value of perseverance is matched by the power of a second chance. It is a story that shows these teens in all their beauty, intelligence, suffering, humor, and humanity. A view from the trenches of public education, this book challenges preconceptions about who these kids are and what is needed to help them graduate.
