Everybody Has a Story, Everybody Has a Song…

This memoir chronicles the life of Donald Collins. As the oldest child, Donald carries many titles from babysitter, to cook, to errand boy, to maid…the list is endless. Donald suffers from low self-esteem as he is unable to fit in with his peers and is bullied at his home by his spiteful stepfather. Forced to submit to an uncommon religion widens the gap between Donald and fellow students and he seeks solace in being an overachiever in scholastics.
