****Reading with Patrick: A Teacher, a Student, and a Life-Changing Friendship, by Michelle Kuo

An American Memoir, 2017
LibraryThing.com Early Reviewer


In Reading with Patrick the author speaks of a hard-learned lesson - that one cannot change the world, or even one person, permanently. Change, or the answer to change - from poverty, violence, drug-addiction and familial dysfunction to inept schools, etc. - is a multifaceted problem with no single solution. Helping to effect change is imperative, it is our expectations that can throw us off balance. Kuo, as a young adult, finds this out and shares her experiences along the way. A thought-provoking relevant read.
