AdLit.org brings us Walter Dean Myers’ Second Chance Initiative. The page is rich in resources dealing with substance abuse and dropout prevention, but its focus is Myers’ new book. You’ll find a YouTube video featuring Myers discussing his new book Dope Sick as well as a link to download the first three chapters of the book.
The book will be released on Feb. 10th, but will also be available in its entirety online – free. Myers believes strongly in giving teens a second chance and hopes to reach those who can help teens through this initiative. Kudos to Walter Dean Myers!
