Synopsis: Nana always said. "If you want people to remember you, you have to be a little different, you must always be sincere, and finally you have got to make them all feel special, especially the girls. 

I'm sure she didn't mean it the way that I took it.

The journey we are on is a difficult one, even more so for those of a broken family. Follow the adventures of one such boy as he searches for the two desires we all have in common: to be accepted by others and to be truly happy.

Find out what happens when sensitivity and sex collide!

"Straightforward and refreshingly candid, this book is an impressive presentation of a life with a plethora of helpful lessons to share. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to cut through the typical facade of relationship "politics" and learn the roots of true, lasting happiness." APEX Reviews

"Much more effective in understanding relationships than Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus..." Kenneth Weene, PhD. Author of Widow's Walk and Memoirs from the Asylum

"Sensitivity 101 grows into a very mature voice, sharing some very mature perspectives, ones that any parent or anyone working with children would be well served to read. One of the most soothing reads I've ever read." OEBooks Book Blogs

"This book is about understanding and self-worth." J.L. Knox, author Musical Chairs

From the Inside Flap: Although we never heard the words, "I love you" flow from the lips of any family member, we knew that we all cared for each other by the loving symbols that we saw. Her house was full of them, mostly evidenced by the presence of flowers, roses in particular. There were always fresh red roses which meant love and beauty; pink ones for appreciation, yellow ones meaning "I care" and friendship, and most importantly white roses which symbolized remembrance and respect.
...One person I really connected with was my great-grandmother, I called her Nana. The two of us could sit and talk about anything for hours. On the subject of religion, she reinforced my conviction that it does not matter how or where you worship God, as long as you believed in Him. She said, "Treating people with the respect they deserve is the best way to get into heaven."
We also had another ritual which I still do to this day. Whenever the smell of rain came to the air--you know the smell--we would wait excitedly for the storm to hit. As soon as it did, there were the two of us out dancing in the downpour. Nana told me, "Rain is the cleansing agent God sends to wipe away your sins."
She also taught me the first lesson of my journey: "You are going to meet many people throughout your life and if you want them to remember you, you must always be a little different, you must be sincere, and you must make them feel special, especially the girls."
