I'm glad that I listened to this book

Would you try another book from Travis Hunter and/or Ezra Knight?

Yes, I would.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I kind of expected it. It gave the book closure, but it was a little sad.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, I would

Any additional comments?

I was disappointed the first few minutes of listening to the book, but quickly changed my mind. It isn't an action-packed page turner, but enough is going on to keep you interested. A few of the conversations in the book made me think. That is what I appreciated about this story. This book was very well-written and had a purpose.

Worth the listen

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. Went into wanting to hear about some of the experiences men have growing into maturity and I wasn’t disappointed.

An audible must have!

This book was excellent. The story line kept me looking forward to my daily listen as I drove to work. The characters seem to come to life as the narrator told the tale. Excellent listen.
