I have read this book at least four times since 1995. This last time I read it, I was really able to identify with the author, since I had experienced a lot of the same struggles and emotions as Mr. McCall by then. Since there are so many positive things that I could say about this book, way too many to put into words here, I will just say this: If you are a young person, especially a young person of color, you should read this book. It is a blessing...

It took me half the book to get into it. Nathan McCall writes beautifully and powerfully. He gives the reader a real sense of where he grew up and how he grew up, and is clearly a caring human being. He also has a strong ego, knew what he wanted along the way and got there. He could have cut the first half of the book to 2/3 the length. The interesting part is how he learned to cope with what life threw at him, and that was in the last half of the book.

I recommend this book highly for anyone not afraid to leave their comfort zone. The raw honesty and window into this life will not leave you unchanged.

Awesome book. Read it if you have time. This was a required reading for class. I would've read it without it being required is how informative and good it is. Pick yours up.

I love every page of this book! Very gripping. Changed my perspective and understandings on minority group relations and “the system”.

Great book, very transparent. Despite how this man's story began, his ending made all the difference.
Recommend for all African-American brothers.

Extremely personal. Opened my eyes up to a world I would never experienced. I'm thankful for this narrative.

Frighteningly honest and real. A must read for all who are interested in the complexity of the African American experience.
