WIHWT: Tough read-alouds

“I wanted to run faster than the speed of sound, but nobody, no matter how much pain they’re in, can run that fast. So I heard the boom of my father’s rifle when he shot my best friend. A bullet only costs about two cents, and anybody can afford that.” From: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie. Not sure I can read that chapter aloud again. http://www.nea.org/readacross
