This was such a heartwarming and inspirational coming-of-age story! It wouldn’t be hard to draw readers into Anthony’s journey because there is so much to anticipate; this book pulled my heartstrings! It was hard not to get emotional! My heart ached for every trial that Anthony faced at such a young age and yet he grew up to be a successful man with good values. This book showed that people can surpass the hardest challenges in life as long as they have the right people around them. Definitely a 5-star read for me!
