This is a heartfelt book. One definitely wonders how a young boy could have such high morals with such an angry racist father. He had no problem in beating and almost killing his son. People like this never change. A group of strangers meet and become each other's family. This is a wonderful story that is true to real life which leaves you happy for this wonderful group of loving, caring people.
