Writing my Wrongs


I won't lie when I say I wasn't one hundred percent sure on weather I wanted to read this book or not. But man I sure am glad I took a chance and picked this book up. From page one to the very end I was hooked. Shaka Senghor has a way of making you feel like you were actually there seeing the story come to life. 

I will admit I grew up a middle class white female in a loving home. Shaka's life is so far off how my experiences that I felt like I was reading a horror book. But the reality is that Shaka's story is the reality for many kids and adults these days. 

Reading this story taught me to be thankful for my surroundings and my loved ones. Also to be aware that people need help in our community. Sometimes one person can make a huge difference in someone's life. And that no matter how terrible your life may be always hold onto hope that one day things can turn around. 

I am so thankful that I received this book for free from bloggingforbooks.com for my honest review. It is a refreshing tell of street life, prison life, and then change. I love the fact we get to learn the whole story from start to finish and not just the prison side of his life. If you are looking for a story that grabs you and keeps you going to the end then I recommend this book.
