‘Mid-Way’ By John Boyne

A young, male, white teacher joins the staff of the worst of the worst inner-city schools in the state to teach.

Instead, every day, his students, Virgil-like, guide him through the dark woods of race in middle America.

This day is his last. What was learned, what is lost, what remains?
