An exciting revision of a classic book, Hopeful Girls, Troubled Boys focuses on the life histories of the largest immigrant group in New York City, the youth from the Dominican Republic, the West Indies, and Haiti, to explain why girls of color are succeeding at higher rates than their male counterparts. Nancy Lopez brings to life the attitudes, feelings, and expectations of these teens, and shows that girls maintain optimistic outlooks on their lives, while boys are ambivalent about the promises of education. This fascinating account explains how and why our schools and cities are failing boys of color.
