Through the telling of his own life story, Moore explores the issues that separate success and failure. He also counterpoints his story with another man, someone who shared the same name, was around the same age, grew up fatherless in a similar Baltimore neighborhood, but is serving a life sentence for murder. Compelled to write to the other Wes, the author was surprised to receive a reply. And so began a friendship, as letters turned into visits and the two men got to know one another. This compelling story about the challenges of growing up and the responsibility for the choices we make, is sure to inspire.
