"Michael Phillips is like a son to me. He has become a voice of hope for this generation. Having overcome profound challenges, he now speaks for the forgotten children of our society with honesty and power. His story will touch your heart, make you think, and inspire you to act until we can say together that 'all the children are well.'"--Bishop T. D. Jakes, chairman of the board for T. D. Jakes Foundation, bestselling author and award-winning filmmaker, and senior pastor of the Potter's House

"Do not mistake this book for just one more 'overcoming hardship' story. This is a book about America: our race relations, justice system, and tragically dysfunctional schools. It is a book about faith and being human. So often, taking on such vast topics risks oversimplification. By contrast, this is a highly intelligent, finely nuanced, and deeply moving book. Here is a testimony, above all, to lived intelligence--illuminating our national traumas from one man's personal experience without sentimentality. It is a remarkable book in every sense of that word."--Dr. David Steiner, executive director of Johns Hopkins Institute for Education Policy
