This is a story about two best friends -- growing up in some of the worst imaginable circumstances of abuse and poverty. One of those boys is on death row, and writing to his best friend via letters. As you read this book imagine and place yourself in their shoes and prepare yourself as things go spiraling out of control.
What would you do if you were in their shoes?
Read the letters that explain in more depth how things started changing in both boys lives. Sometime, the choices and decisions we make in life can change our paths dramatically.
