The events in his life were so touching that it was hard to read this book, but so important and rewarding for this reason. This book shows why we need to take care of the kids in our communities.

Opened my eyes to the statement "brought up by the system". Heart wrenching, poignant and wise. Hard to put down. Successfully delivers.
