Alexandre spent his childhood in the slums of a Caribbean island rife with political unrest. Determined he could be so much more than those about him, he struggles everyday, for his entire life, to be better.

But eventually, the strife about him catches up, and he finds out his roots aren't that far from the worst about him.

I couldn't put this book down. I found myself hoping for the best for this young man. Feeling empathy toward him. Wanting him to succeed.

I give this book...

....Five Stars and...

...a big Thumbs Up!
