This is the first book to provide a comprehensive, grounded picture of the transformation of America’s older industrial cities. It is neither a dystopian narrative nor a one-sided "the cities are back" story, but a balanced picture rooted in the nitty-gritty reality of these cities. At the beginning he was a bit selfish, but then he starts to respect other people and take care of his parents.

i found this a good read and i liked the fact it draws to children(young adult) the bigotry that does go on in and around Glasgow. It touches on the situation of refugees as well as the divide between two religions and football teams. Deferred maintenance, inadequate capital investment and fiscal woes are taking an increasing toll, as stories from New York, New Jersey, Washington DC and elsewhere over the past year or two have made abundantly clear. At first, I thought that Graham's character was too common, but then I realized that if it wasn't, Graham's evolution wouldn't seem so broad.But over all, this would be one of the best books I have ever read, and I thoroughly enjoyed and was amazed by this book. Divided City’s earlier chapters reminded me of a certain kind of not very good Science Fiction which doesn’t trust its reader to make the connections, so too much is spelled out. Told through the eyes of young boys, this book delves deep into the preconceived ideas of what it is to be Celtic/Rangers supporters in Glasgow in the modern day, alongside the hardships faced by refugees in scotland.

Mostar (since reunited) in Bosnia and Herzegovina between Croatian Republic of Herzeg-Bosnia and Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.It is recommended that staff read Tackling sectarianism: An overview of resources and use the Timeline professional learning resource as preparation for delivering this anti-sectarian resource.

Graham is still concerned that the police will be looking for him, so he goes to Joe's family's hairdressing salon and allows Joe to put streaks into his hair. The outline of the hunters – distorted and elongated against the bright floodlights used for night games on the football pitches. The friendship is cemented when Graham witnesses a group of boys stab a young asylum seeker (or refugees from other countries), Kyoul.

The dialogs about it are brilliand, because they are very logical and they are written very competent, even though the author is a woman. But often, especially in areas like this, they’d be lying ajar because people didn’t bother, or the door catch was broken.

A gripping tale about two boys, one Celtic fan, one Rangers fan, who must find their own answers in a divided world. But, they become good friends, although they have different world outlook, they believe in different things, support different teams. We understand their dreams of footballing glory, and admire the way they negotiate a complicated minefield of prejudice and misunderstanding.I read divided city in my school and we read a couple of chapters a day and most of the class wants to continue but I know that I can read it on my iPod and my mummy likes it when I read a book and I like reading on iBook because you get to read it over and over and over aegean and aegean if you like it that much like I do it's the best book ever and most girls think it looks like a boy book but it's not I'm a girl and I have read this book over and over and over its a great book I know it looks a bit boring but it's very exiting and you just want to read on and on and on . Especially notable examples of divided cities are divided capitals, including Nicosia (since 1974), Jerusalem (1948–1967 de jure; ongoing since 1948), Berlin (1949–1990) and Beirut (1975–1990).
