MIDDLE SCHOOL EDITION
WHAT EDUCATORS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT
THE MIDDLE SCHOOL EDITION OF "THE PRIZE"
"Mission accomplished! The middle school edition of The Prize is appropriate for younger readers without sacrificing the integrity of the original book. "The Prize" is a mind-opener that will engage students of today. However, "The Prize" is a book for all ages. It focuses on self-efficacy, informative learning for growth, and survival in society."
Dianne D. Austin-Graham,
Teacher, Koscuiszko Middle School, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
(Koscuiszko Middle School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is where the pilot for the Live and Let Live Bully Prevention Program upon which the novel is based occurred in September 2001.)
Reviews By Young Readers
"This is a book that will have you turning page after page to see if they all win or they all lose the prize."
Excerpt from Middle School Version
The next day, Karter and Eddie were in the schoolyard shooting hoops when Karter caught a glimpse of Moe on his way from the school building to the convent. He winked at Eddie, who nodded toward Moe.
"Hey!" Eddie shouted. "Moe, want to shoot some hoops?"
Moe stopped and smiled at Eddie. "Thank you very much for the invitation, Eddie, but I am not very proficient at playing the game."
Karter threw the ball to Eddie and let out a high-pitched, fake laugh.
"Proficient. Did you hear that, Eddie?" He hit his forehead with the palm of his hand. "Proficient. Can you beat that?"
