Tracy Kidder, Author Harper Perennial $13.99 (352p) ISBN 978-0-380-71089-8
`` Christine Zajac teaches fifth grade in a racially mixed school in a poor district of Holyoke, Mass. . . . Through Kidder's calmly detailed re-creation of Zajac's daily round we come to know her students' fears and inmost strivings; we also share this teacher's frustrations, loneliness and the rush of satisfaction that comes with helping students learn,'' wrote PW. ``A compelling microcosm of what is wrong--and right--with our educational system.''
