A fictional coming of age story of a boy becoming a man under very difficult circumstances. Dave is the result of an unplanned pregnancy and eventual abandonment by both biological parents to the care of his grandmother. Using Dave's life as a backdrop the author includes sound practical advice for teens and parents about the process and progress of a child's growth and development. Dave's unresolved anger and deep wounded hurt results in behavior that is clearly not in his best interest. I enjoyed this story of a young man running from his past as a victim into a possible successful future of his own choosing in which he eventually learns from the mistakes and errors in judgment of his self and others.
