All young people need to read this book. After reading it twice, I still get a strong sense of 'that' moment when a basically nice young black man in American, made a wrong decision, as a teenager and spent years paying the price.
One wrong moment decided this man's fate.
Until he decides to turn his life around. Another 'moment' when his own identity took control and led him from darkness.
This was only the beginning. Now famous, Nathan McCall has much to share with today's youth--and, us adults.
