Captain Mitch Lansing has just transferred to the Bayview Heights Police Department when he finds out one of his assignments is an Outreach Program that helps troubled kids at the local high school. Mitch is not happy about this since he has trouble relating to teenagers. Teacher Cassie Smith has trouble relating to cops. Her past run-ins with police as a teenager has left an impression...and it's not good. Now Mitch and Cassie are stuck together for ten weeks, clashing about their teaching styles and what is right for the children.
Kathryn Shay always writes a unique, thoughtful story. This book deals with delinquency, gangs, and families in need of help. It also deals with the Vietnam war and how those who fought in the war were affected by it. My rating: 4 Stars.
Captain Mitch Lansing would like to help the troubled teens in Cassie Smith's high school class for students at risk.Unfortunately that means sharing his experiences with them. Mitch has deliberately blocked those painful memories for years. But the kids are very hard to resist.
