This is a short story about a child (Todd Carson) that was neglected at the age of 3 by his parents and was taken into custody by his grandma (Estella Carson). There Todd stayed with his grandma for 11 years in Westmont, CA. Though Todd’s grandma did the best she could to raise him, he never knew how it felt to spend traditional holidays with his family. Todd had so many unanswered questions about his parents when he was young, but his grandma didn’t want to talk about it. Sometimes the truth can hurt. After a tragedy involving Todd’s grandma, he is forced to live back with the parents that never raised him. Instead of him getting embraced by his parents, they continue to push him away. He often wonders the streets of LA where he goes to clear his mind from his prostitute mother(Wendy) and his drug dealing dad(John). The journey he goes through for hope is heartbreaking, but he continues to keep his faith. Todd’s mother looks at him as if he didn’t exist. His father(John) never allows his son to call him Dad and doing so was punishable by a beating. You will address me as Mister., said John. This is a good book that talks about philosophy, and how to help people that go through situations continue to never give up.
