I consider a good read to be anything that can transport me mentally into the book so that its not so much reading as it is taking a journey into another world. As I walk through that other world the best journey is the one that will cause me to smile, laugh and cry tears of joy and heartbreak. This book did all the above and more.The only slightly negative about this book was that in the beginning, I found myself flipping back through to see if I had missed something only to realize that the author had never revealed what I was looking for yet. Once I began to trust my reading and memory skills, this book quickly sucked me into a world where my emotions ran raw. This book centers around a man and a young boy who dont know who their parents are and in up in the foster care of Uncle Willie. You will quickly find yourself hurting, laughing, crying and overwhelmed with joy as you journey through the lives of these characters as they try to discover who or whose they really are. This book will break your heart, but in the end, it will be worth the journey.
