5.0 out of 5 stars Overcoming all odds- A great read and teaching tool!, December 27, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Chance in the World: An Orphan Boy, a Mysterious Past, and How He Found a Place Called Home (Hardcover)
Steve Pemberton bares and shares in this story of his childhood and the systems that failed him. He is a staunch advocate for equality, finding one's path and hope in the world.

The book will offer hope and a kindred heart to youth in care. It will be a great tool for professionals who work with youth in care to share as an example of overcoming obstacles and telling one's story to move onward and upward on the journey.

Take a few days to read the book.
If you have adolescents, have them read the book- it is a look into the world of foster care and youth who don't have support systems in place.
It is real and uplifting!
There is so much that we can all do when we pull together to touch lives of others and Steve touches upon this over and over in his book.
