"If you can write, that's great. If you can tell a story, that's even greater. But if you can work a resilient premise into both, you're worth digging to find."

Hope's Boy: A Memoir by Andrew Bridge

A truly valuable, praiseworthy memoir. Loved the title. The story is impressively detailed and passionately written as Andy recalls the people coloring his memory. The love he held out for his mother and her return I as well admire and respect. But what is most moving... and outstanding, is the way Andy opens his memoir; arms raised, palms flat, facing outward...surrendering a credible advocate for children in foster care. A humbling memoir of extraordinary integrity and reliability.
