Description

Life has never been easy for Anthony, the secret love child of a well-known US general and his beautiful mistress. After his father perishes in a plane crash, his cancer-stricken mother, Yuni, is forced to move with him to a tiny New York City apartment. And to make matters worse, he's flagged as an easy target for neighborhood bullies, who constantly pester him inside and outside of school. But after a brutal attack prompts him to fight back in a fit of rage, things start to turn around for the young boy. He shows promise joining the swim and wrestling teams in school, and begins to grow into the tall and physically fit body he inherited from his father. Just when Anthony's situation seems to be getting better, however, tragedy strikes his life yet again. In order to put the pieces back together, he turns to some of the strong female figures in his life. But it's the one girl who he least expects that might have the power to heal him-shedding his image as the illegitimate son through the magic of love and helping him leave his tragic childhood behind.show more
