If you find this book interesting, you might also want to watch the Academy Award nominated documentary called STREETWISE (Justin Early) is in it.
Adults disappoint children all the time, even parents. But there's still this innate belief in children that some adults are compelled to be heroes... preachers, judges, police officers, yet those who prey on children wear the disguises that lure the children in with false hope and when these 'heroes' reveal themselves, it shatters the last bit of trust that children have.
Justin is lucky to be alive. As a small child, he survived events on the streets that would have brought a grown man to his knees. What struck me the most about Justin is that even when he was filled with rage and striking out at anyone and everyone, there was still this kind heart in Justin who fell in love with someone he couldn't have, who watched out for his friends, who befriended those that most of us would cross the street to avoid, and who kept trying over and over again with the parents who didn't deserve his time. Justin survived hell with his heart still intact and that's the most amazing thing of all.
Buy this book. Buy many copies and send them to social service agencies or teachers or churches. There are so many Justins and Robertas still out there and they're invisible to everyone except those who seek to exploit them.Read more ›
