    I got the opportunity to read this book as an eBook today So I made it a point to get on here and give a review I love this book My opinion is that its better than the original Book Freedom Writers Diary only because i felt bad for the students in the bookand at times I felt there was unnecessary cursing in some stories; then I watched the movie and became a fan of the Freedom Writers But mostly I would say that I bonded with the character Marcus as we share the same first namelol but also his story was amazing in the movie Then I received a tweet that Marcus is really the original Freedom Writer Darrius Garrett and the link to his new book So with much interest I bought the eBook for like 1000 and I'm glad I did so as it was well worth it I thought the movie was good but Mr Garrett book is amazing What I seen in the movie is small compared to the stories he told in his new book I am a youth leader here at my community center and I thought of each of my kids as I read Mr Garrett's story Great Job Mr Garrett you get 5 stars from me as well as I will buy a hard copy as well to share this with the young people in my youth groupKeep doing what you are doing sir

    This was such an enlightening and inspirational book The author wrote from the heart and I could see the face of Marcus from the film as I read this book The story about his life and the behind the scene story of the Freedom Writer experience was captivating I have become a true fan of Mr Garretts writing and plan to tell everyone that I can about how great this book is as I feel this book just as many others will be one of the hands down greatest memoirs written that slip through the cracks and stays under the radar because of who the author is as well as the misconception that people will think its just the same story they have read in the previous book and seen in the movie but its so far from the truthI appreciate the fact that the book didn't have an unlimited amount of cursing in it as you can see the maturity and growth of this young man as the chapters progresses Unlike other books this is authentic and very real I heard him speak at a conference that I attended a few months ago and he talked about this book and its everything that he said it would be and I'm glad I read it and I hope millions of other avid readers pick it up as well

    I received this book as part of a Goodreads First Reads giveaway I was already familiar with the Freedom Writers' story having seen the movie and also having had the opportunity to see Manuel Scott speak at an orientation for teachers Darrius Garrett's book presents a fresh perspective on the story and allows you to take a walk in the life of one of the Freedom Writers Not only does he take you into Erin Gruwell's classroom but also offers you a behind the scenes look at what his life was like outside the classroom His writing allows you to truly put yourself in his shoes and imagine what you would do in the situations he faces throughout the book I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the Freedom Writers' story especially other educators It reminds us how important it can be to look beyond what we see in the classroom and to consider how a student's home life can impact their school experience

    Raw simple and honest LOVED IT Facts this book is a memoir not a diary of one of the Freedom Writers see movie Darrius It tells the story of a boy growing up under the influence of drugs and gang violence Then he meets a teacher who changes his life forever While the movie focused on the teacher and the class this book is Darrius's chance to tell the world of his personal story Terrific result A fast yet effective read Darrius describes each stage in his life like a camera zooming in on important milestones and moments He adds bursts of creativity here and there with poetry and reflections While the style did not always seem in sync to me past tense voice clashing with present tense this little book is a beautiful story of surviving perseverance and tolerance Oh and of course it's about the power of a great teacher
