    1. Kay Haugaard’s No Place tells the story of Arturo Morales, a Hispanic American boy, who attends an inner city Los Angeles school. His sixth grade class accepts the challenge of improving their neighborhood by transforming a vacant lot used as a local junkyard into a park for younger children. This fictionalized account of a true event tells how a class of sixth graders organized, advocated, earned money, and inspired others to donate to their cause to turn a dumping ground into a safe, green s [...]


    2. The book "No Place" is about this boy named Arturo who was brought up in a bad neighborhood in Los Angeles, California. With gang member and drug dealers lurking his neighorhood, Arturo wishes he become a member of a gang called "Los Vatos" inspired by his brother Fransico. However, with only 6 months before graduating, Arturo and his class must earn 50,000 dollars to build a park for children of all ages. In this story, it shows how hard work and determination can really pay off and it could re [...]


    3. Sweet, super optimistic book, about how poor public school 6th graders can come together to do good for their community. A class of 6th grade kids work with their teacher who lets them design their own curriculum which engages fully in the civic process and does change their world. Everything that WOULD have gone wrong in most case actually, luckily, goes right. It was a bit hard to suspend disbelief at times, but it's written well and the brisk plot just carries the reader past those challenges [...]


    4. No Place an excellent book in which a Mexican child named Arturo Morales struggles to build his identity in a neighborhood where children look forward to growing up and joining gangs instead of going to college. Even Arturo has the dream to join the Los Vatos Locos which are a gang of his street and in which he thinks people are sworn to protect each other and be like brothers for the rest of their life. This idea out of any other appeals to him and that is why he gets jealous and slightly proud [...]


    5. They story I read is “NO PLACE”, in which the protagonist, Arturo, is a boy who lives within they bad side of town, but however still retains his joyous personality. At school Arturo and his classmates Trevor, Juanita, Angel, Clorrisa, and Maria, made it their goal to build a park in the neighborhood, with a little help of their teachers, Miss Fenwick and Mr. Moreno. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the sufficient funds to build their class park, so all students went out to do a little work [...]


    6. Arturo Morales lives in a neighborhood with no fun or any place for any children to play. Only a gang “Los Vatos Locos”- where’s Arturo’s brother spent most of his day with. Arturo wants to follow his brother steps, because he has no one else to look up to. Everyone in this neighborhood joins this gang, or just get marry and start a family. No one in this neighborhood finishes high school or go to college. One day in school, Arturo had an idea to make the junkyard into a playground for e [...]


    7. Arturo Morales lives in inner-city Los Angeles, in a neighborhood with no safe place for kids to play while his brother Francisco grows increasingly involved in gang life with Los Vatos Locos. Arturo is caught up in a school project to create a park in the neighborhood for little kids. At first everyone thinks it’s a crazy idea that will never happen, but the kids work hard and learn many lessons about governmental process, p.r business and fundraising. The park becomes a reality and Artu [...]


    8. This is going to sound racistd maybe I am wrong, because I do not know the author personally.but the book read like a white, middle class woman writing about what she thinks would happen in an ideal society. All topics were superficial (no depth) and everything ran perfectly/smoothly. A sixth grade class decides to turn an abandoned lot into a park for small childrend they manage to buy the property ($59K) and build a park ($20k for the playground). Meanwhile the main character's older brother i [...]


    9. I thought it really took a good amount of strength for Arturo not to give up on the buliding project for the park. He really showed how dedicated he was to the cause.Even though his family e.g his brother and father didn't support him, he pulled through and showed that he made the park possible in his neighborhood.


    10. A "feel good" book about 6th graders in Los Angeles, CA, working together to get a mini-park for their barrio. I enjoyed reading about how the kids dealt with cultural biases and community institutions.
