Lies My Teacher Told me is right up there with Zinn if I'm tutoring a USAmerican that didn't come out of what's in my underpants or if some judge thought somebody else would be better for them than their own flesh and blood:

If you're talking about a teen/young adult who isn't financially dependent on the empire, I think it would make a perfectly acceptable spine for US History 101 for a junior high/high school level student with access to a reasonable public or private library, adequate time to research, and enough food security and shelter.

You could spend a lot more money for a lot less education.

Might be too scary for under-puberty folks. I'd just suggest world history or some quality, age-appropriate USAmerican literature instead.
