I thought that this was an amazing story of a young man desiring to change his life and helping others to understand that it is not an easy task, the individual has to play an active roll in the process. He was very honest about his experience. I thought that he could have left out the profanity in his descriptions. Although the profanity helped to paint a picture of the life he lived, it became a distraction for me being an individual that does not use those words.
Overall, I thought that it was a great testimony of his life and overcoming his struggles to walk out his life’s purpose. He now work’s to turn around other young men that are going down the same path that he did.
I gave the book 4/5 stars. However, as an educator, I would not recommend it to my middle school students due to excessive use of profanity.
