A compelling book that is his true story. I marveled that he became so successful and positive considering the odds were stacked against him by a sick aunt. There is a special place in hell for this woman..

What is up with these crazy foster parents???? Why are so many of them abusive and conniving?? I guess there is a large majority of abusive adults in the world, and children, whether biological or not, are easy targets..... I dunno. Sad, sad story.

It is listed as a true story and it probably is ... but I had some doubts about it. It is sad to know that children are abused and mistreated every day in our own country and yes our own town!
