Another fascinating piece of Terrell Wright's story-telling abilities, which reminded me in a way of the adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. The honesty and love, he describes his little life incidents with - which are by far not ordinary at all, turn your general black and white picture of growing up in the hood from an outsider point of view into a participant, and allow you to see a lot of grey shades in between. You wonder what would have happened, if he had just grown up in a different environment. But he didn't know better, and that's what makes it seem so innocent.
Although the overall issue is sad, Terrell knows how to entertain and that shows from the first to the last page. Hadn't I read his first book Home of the Body Bags, I would have probably not read this one, and then I would have missed an excellent view on something I had never had the chance to see. When is your next book coming out?
