    This book is not your average story. This story opens up your eyes to what many believe is impossible. I have never read this book but I would gladly give it to a classroom of students who need the inspiration from the elementary schools to the eldest adult. :-D

    Some dream of having hit songs on Billboards Top 100, others dream of staring in Block Buster films or Hit TV Shows.
