From the Author:

While writing my experience I found myself smiling and even laughing at what I was thinking at the time that these things happened in real time.  I felt sadness at times as I recalled some of my experience.  All of my experience that I present was real and described through the eyes of the boy I was at the time that it happened.  You will experience my feelings as I dealt with my daily episodes that was my life.  It was not my intention to expose a lot of negative things that would depress the readers of my writings, but only what would help one to see my effort to be positive as I experienced what life brought my way.  I was not trying to fit in with others at any cost either.  I made it a "take it or leave it" choice if one wanted to share my company.

I look back feeling proud that his family survived the experience with a hopeful future.  My hope is that you will find reading it a positive experience.

From the Back Cover:
