Publisher's Summary

Problem Child is a heart-wrenching story that will take you on an emotional roller-coaster ride that makes The Twilight Zone look like Disneyland. 

Problem Child is the unbelievably true story of Terrell Carter, an American musician and actor who grew up in Buffalo, New York, in a dysfunctional family, each member crazier than the next. And the Problem Child is the only one in the story who may, or may not, actually have a problem. An emotional journey of trials and revelations, with a huge secret at its core, this story may force you to laugh - just to keep from crying. 

“Terrell, we’re still feeling the goosebumps.” (Quincy Jones) 

“My beautiful baby boy, even more beautiful on the inside, and he sings even better than that. Now Ms. Patti is giving him his wings to fly among the greats.” (Patti LaBelle)

Amazing Story!

This story made me think about my life and family. Sometimes we have to know where we came from to know where we are going. This book has been a blessing to me and as much as I love my two children, this story made me want to hug them and remind them that I will always be here for them no matter what life throws at us. Thank you so much for blessing us with your story Terrell Carter.

Worth the wait . . .

. . . this started out slow and was overacted in the first half to the point that it was difficult to listen for being melodramatic. But, it was worth the wait. It seemed as though the delivery matured along with the titular character. The story picked up speed, the writing tightenedup, and I found myself becoming intensely vested in this man's development. I've never seen him in a movie, in a series, and I've never heard him sing, so I was a blank slate, as he was to me, and I left in awe. Truly remarkable, I can't wait to see what he is up to next.

Sting!!!

I’ve followed this young man from the first time I heard him in Tyler Perry’s plays. I have been in awww. This book had me from the beginning. His voice is so smooth and the transition from character to character was very skillful. I could close my eyes and see his story come to life. I know I’m a few years late but great job.

Absolute courage

It takes an incredibly strong person to experience disrespect and disfunction at such a profound level, tried and purified by fire and pressure, to rise from the ashes a true diamond in the rough.
