    Great book that tells the whole story about Michael Oher's life growing up in tough parts of Memphis in and out of foster care, and how he overcame the incredible difficulties/challenges to rise academically and athletically in his life. Oher does a great job of bringing awareness to the needs that so many kids have who are in disfunctional family backgrounds and how we can help. You just might find yourself motivated to accomplish something amazing in your own life by reading Oher's story of determination. A great read that's going to change some people's lives.

    This book was totally different from the one the Toucys wrote, Michael did an excellent job, of letting us know what his life was really like. He also mentioned how the movie had to take literary license to make the movie better, but wasn't totally true. Way to go Michael!

    If you liked the Blind Side, you will love this book. It help fill in the blanks from the movie.
