Confessions of a Second Grade Failure

The Confessions of a Second Grade Failure focuses specifically on Rhodes' childhood in Kingsport, Tennessee from 1960-1972.  It gives insight to life during this turbulent period and of the changes that came to cities throughout the country in this important decade.  Both humorous and poignant, it weaves together the life story of one Appalachian child, his hometown and the cultural context of change in the country.
