About the Author
Aigul Aubanova: originally from Kazakhstan, brings a broader cross-cultural perspective to her independent research in the field of parenting ethics, the essence of which is rooted in the philosophy of internal freedom. Her ideas are inspired by the book Parenting For Everyone by Simon Soloveychik, which she and her husband translated into English in 2006. Victor Dull: from New Stuyahok, Alaska, has been a counselor for the past 16 years, specializing in adolescent mental health and substance abuse issues. Victor uses various modalities in his practice as a counselor, including the philosophical concepts such as dignity, which seems to strike a cord in teenagers. The couple lives in Keizer, Oregon.

Sam is a bit preachy at times, but does a great job of introducing a subject hard to talk about, dignity. Sam and Andrew are well-thought out, believable characters, who become friends and are able to discuss complex issues in a way that an abused teenage boy can relate to.
The reading is hard going at times but the plot is original and thought-provoking, with a little light relief coming from the book's underlining plot of Andrew's relationship with his parents and his discovery of the female species. If you find yourself getting bogged under by the dignity monologues, stick with it as the book has a great moral and a truly heartwarming ending.
