it was amazing

This was the only non-fiction book that i can say I've enjoyed reading, it is written from the perspective of the more successful Wes Moore who didn't end up in jail but had a pretty rough life. To start each section of the book is an interlude of both guys talking to each other in the hour long visit that Wes is allowed from jail. Both guys grew up without a father figure in their lives, didn't do so well at school (until one got sent to military school) and saw the rough parts of Baltimore. The decisions that were made by them shaped their lives at a very early age, one Wes was taught if someone messed with you, you taught them a lesson and grew up living that exact lifestyle while the other Wes grew up rebellious as well he just wanted to fit in and bridge his lives at school and in his neighborhood until he got put into military school and fixed his life for the better. This book is a very good read even though it isn't long it's a gripping tale that makes you want to keep turning the pages until its over and then upsets you that your finished.
