Synopsis

You Never Forget How to Ride a Bike by Students of John Marshall High School, Salvador Plascencia

826LA asked 78 students at John Marshall High School in Los Angeles to tell the world about lessons they've learned, and they don't disappoint. They lead us through the moments that have shaped their lives--among them encounters with Def Leppard albums, wormy peaches, campus police, and Salvadoran gangs--and share with us the things they've learned about the kindness of strangers, resolve in the presence of naysayers, and the value of a dollar. You Never Forget How to Ride a Bike also features a foreword by novelist Salvador Plascencia, author of The People of Paper.
