This memoir is a touching story of perseverance and overcoming the obstacles of life. I plan to let my sons read this so that they may be inspired to keep their heads up no matter what comes their way in life!~RRamer, Amazon Reviewer



What an amazing story of triumph! Cordell's story is one that should be told to all of our young people. He had every reason to fail, but showed incredible strength to beat the odds. This is a great inspirational story and I agree, would be an amazing stage play or movie. ~Courtney Ward, Educator, Amazon Reviewer
