    Yes Cheryl,

    Hurston's - Their Eyes Were Watching God and Mowry's - Rats in the Trees.
    Both cover some very sensitive issues; however, my kids have told me about
    their real life experiences that make the issues from each text seem
    lightweight. The kids actually enjoyed both texts and got into some serious
    discussions around the issues. I caught some flack from a few parents, but
    teaching in an alternative school environment seemed to buffer the problem.
    We were able to convince the parents that the texts were not as bad as they
    thought, but were more of a lesson for life.
