From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up—In this motivational novel, a boy tries to understand how two brothers, one of whom is his father, grew up in the same circumstances and yet led very different lives. Alvin is in prison; his brother, Nelson, is a doctor. The story reveals some valuable lessons while reinforcing the importance of strong family relationships and the value of adults who can guide young people with love and a solid sense of direction. Although promoted as a graphic novel, the book fails to present the genre's characteristics; it has regular prose and few illustrations that are good but faint, giving the impression of opening a time capsule. Lacking originality, the examples cited in the book have been overused to the point of cliché. This is an easy-to-read title that could be used to spark classroom discussions.—Narda McCarthy, Consultant, Para Los Niños, Broward County, FL
