In this inspiring book, Brooks writes about his life growing up as an African-American boy on the north side of Pittsburgh. Although money was often tight, his struggling single mother provided her only child with a loving home and devoted extended family. Even the shocking revelation by his mother when Brooks was just eleven that he was adopted didn't prevent the young boy from following his ambitions to go to college and leave the ghetto behind. This is an adoptee's compelling true story which shows how to cross cultural barriers. Heritage and reunion narrative provides powerful insights on overcoming racism and poverty.
