Abandoned by his father, neglected by his mother, shuttled between foster homes and a boys ranch for most of his formative years, a young man refuses to succumb to the fate that the world says should be his. Early on, Alton decides he wants a "nor­mal life"--even if that means standing up to abusive relatives and being teased by his siblings and cousins. Along the way, he keeps an eye out for those who might help lighten the load, never losing hope that such people exist.

This book is a truly amazing book about the true story of a man as a young boy having to go through trials to be who he is today. Mr. Carter as a boy didn't have a very good family life and this book has taught me to be thankful for the things I have and haven't got and to be most thankful for my family. This is an excellent book that I recommend for all ages.
