This book tells the TRUE story of Antwone Quinton Fisher. His life story tells of a cruel and harsh beginning of foster care, due to his mother giving him away to Social Services. Through the hands of his foster mother, Antwone's story tells of harsh physical, mental and, sexual abuse he had to endure.
While sustaining the abuse, Antwone never had that need to be ungrateful. Eventually, Antwone did find his own freedom and joined the Navy to escape these harsh realities of this once frightful life. There were periods in Naval life that Antwone's past seemed to catch up w/ unresolved feelings by starting and creating fights simply out of nowhere.
Resulting in Naval consequences and wanting Antwone to eventually see a counselor, he sought out the counselor's advice to find his own belonging.
The End Result:
I LOVED this book!
The journey this story takes Antwone when most people would look as the past as a F U!
He looked at it as a missing puzzle piece and he was DAMN WELL determined to find the proper fit.
But what he found . . . now that was DAMN NEAR incredible!! The title of this book itself says it all.
In the end:
I Loved This Book!
This book was published in 2001 and one year later in 2002 a feature film was made starring and directed by Denzel Washington and Derek Luke as the title role of remarkable Antwone Fisher.
