Andrew Bridge and 16 other people liked Elana's review of Hope's Boy: A Memoir:
Hope's Boy by Andrew Bridge
"Heartbreaking, beautiful, and honest. The story of a young man who grew-up in tragedy, then returned to help the children he left behind. You'll never forget this book."
Andrew Bridge and 17 other people liked Krista's review of Hope's Boy: A Memoir:
Hope's Boy by Andrew Bridge
"Gripping non-fiction book about a boy with a highly disfunctional mother who ends up in the foster care system. He succeeds despite the odds to become a Harvard Grad and Fulbright scholar - inspirational."
Andrew Bridge and 18 other people liked Jessie's review of Hope's Boy: A Memoir:
Hope's Boy by Andrew Bridge
"The foster care/social system in LA county (at least it was 20 years ago) sounds like a piece of shit operation. I don't understand how Andrew Bridge is who he is today, but I was rooting for him all the way through the book. "
Andrew Bridge and 19 other people liked Hendo's review of Hope's Boy: A Memoir:
Hope's Boy by Andrew Bridge
"Simply written, but a touching memoir. The author spent ten years in the Los Angeles county foster system, and this memoir chronicles his experience. Very clean--totally appropriate for the kids. I'm probably going to use it with my ADVZ next year..."

“Love may not be enough to wake a child in the morning, dress him, and get him to school, then to feed him at night, bathe him, and put him to bed. Still, can any of us imagine a childhood without it?”
Andrew Bridge, Hope's Boy

“Of course, some families cannot be saved and their children cannot be returned. Yet, even then, their love for each other must be worth something.”
Andrew Bridge, Hope's Boy
