But Miles had the grace to step aside and give the world a glimpse into the person he was then, and in doing that, he demonstrates that he did eventually gain compassion for himself. He gave me a window into the psyche of my own 16-year-old, and I’m grateful for the people who have “found” him and “cared like hell.”
I wish every teenager had a Ted.
I commend them for their bravery in sharing their story and hopefully this book can touch those that need it the most. An enjoyable, worthwhile read!
