This book. This book was raw. It was sharp and it is made with language that will offend many. And in the end it was a wonderful read.
As the the title states it is a Memoir that follows the writers life from early teens to just past high school graduation. It is inner city life at it worst at some point and could even be discouraging. But if you follow through the end you will be reward.
I loved and related to the authors freedom found once he let his own voice be heard and how that lead to craving for knowledge that has been written by so many other writers and how one step lead to many and one book leads to many and with that many comes a freedom.
The book was a quick read and I did win a ARC here on Goodreads.
