This book is a great read especially for young men 12 and up. This speaks to the heart of what affects children growing up without a father, and especially young men. I give this book 5 stars because it makes you think about factors in your life that you may not consider if you had two parents. It also gives a step by step guide to help conquer those negative feelings(anger, fear, doubt, lack of confidence, rejection, etc) that many young men face not having their birth father's in their life.
Take some time and do the following: buy the book, read it, and gift it to someone. I think it this book is an eye opener for helping both others and yourself. This is a groundbreaking book that delves into the issues facing men all over the world, and can aid single mother's who are trying to raise their sons.
Hoping for a follow up or a series from this exciting young author.
An excellent book!
