Samuel G. Freedman, Author Harper Perennial $16.99 (448p) ISBN 978-0-06-092087-6
In 1988, Jessica Siegel taught a predominantly Hispanic, black and Asian class at Seward Park High School on Manhattan's lower East Side. Here, Freedman follows Siegel through ``small victories'' such as encouraging college aspirations, and one primary defeat: she left the job at the school year's end. PW called this an ``unsentimental yet moving portrait.'' (May)
