Buses in the United States are thought to be for poor people, and the statistics largely bear that out.

In our modern world there is way too much bigotry and discrimination based on the fact that we are not all alike. Through a shared love of football and a desire to do the right thing, the boys try to find some common ground. This crucial moment of Athenian political history, Nicole Loraux argues in The Divided City, must be interpreted as constitutive of, not a threat to, politics and political life.

The thing that amazed me most is plenty and diversity of motifs, touched in this book, based on religious division. Wherever Breslin has historical or geographical or topological matter to impart, she does it with a light touch and integrates it into the conversation and thoughts of her characters, so that you never feel you're just being fed information. The two boys' attempt to help Kyoul; the pressure put on Graham by his grandfather to march with the other Orangemen; the depression Joe's dad is suffering after the death of his wife; the gradual growth of understanding between the lads of one another's lives and beliefs make this a novel packed with both incident and food for thought. Though they follow different sports teams--Graham loves the Rangers, while Joe is a Celtics fan-- they get along very well. The instructions for learning, for students to refer to directly, have an appropriate tone and clarity which is refreshing to see.

The city of Cleveland, for example, has only 40 per cent of the people it had in 1950, while ever-spreading development has formed a blob spreading 25 or more miles east and south of downtown.Then there is the description of an Old Firm game where the phrase “unleashed a stinging right kick” is used. A variety of activities are utilised with many drama activities incorporated which support young learners to walk in the shoes of people with different viewpoints and beliefs.

The outline of the hunters – distorted and elongated against the bright floodlights used for night games on the football pitches. 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 .

Theresa Breslin’s novel Divided City explores religious tension in Scotland through a gripping tale about two Glaswegian boys, one Celtic fan, one Rangers fan, who must find their own answers in a divided world.
