Police surrounded the school. Then Ruben Ortega got mad... - Norvell Smith knew there would be gang members in the audience. But she looked right at them and gave them a piece of her mind... - It was the middle of winter, and the woman had no shoes. Frank Daily looked down at his Nikes and made a decision... - The house was filled with smoke and flames. And Melinda Clark couldn't find her little brother... - Mr. Smith threatened to kill her mother and brother. But Mercedes Jones spoke out anyway--and a sexual abuser went to jail... - Andrew Holleman had practically grown up on the wetlands. He loved its plants, creatures, and gooey mud. Then he heard about the developer's plan... National award-winning author Barbara A.
