Valerie Kelley5 Stars Out Of 5November 4, 2008Valerie KelleyThis is an awesome,motivational, and inspiring story of how 3 young men changed their destiny in spite of their circumstances. My 11yr old son enjoyed the book so much that we will be attending their book signing for their next book called "The Bond." I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading stories about victory and triumph in the mist of adversity.
