Meet Me Halfway: Milwaukee Stories

Cover: 'Meet Me Halfway: Milwaukee Stories'

Staff Review: "Meet Me Halfway: Milwaukee Stories" by Jennifer Morales


An intriguing look at the interconnectedness of people, this book winds together stories about individuals who are all affected in some way by one boy's tragic fate. It explores the multifaceted issues that make us human and the ways that we relate to those around us. Issues of race, age, and sexual identity are all explored in this brief collection. The stories are beautifully and respectfully told to give us a glimpse into the life and views of individuals in all different walks of life. The best way to gain perspective is to look at the world from a different angle, and this book does that beautifully. The community must shift their focus, put their differences aside, and find a way to help each other heal from this tragedy and move forward to a brighter future. When we care enough to reach out to those around us, beautiful things happen.
