My Mother and I: Born Into Chaos
Ahmad Santos, author
The life of a child and how he translated the difficult world around him. His traumas and altered events grace the pages of this book in an eloquent and symbiotic dance of hurt and hope. This story illustrates the obstacles and adversity that he endured, alongside his siblings and mother, during one of the hardest times of their lives. While his truths and experiences are sometimes almost impossible to believe, they are as they happened and as he experienced them. Even with all of the ill-fated events that took place, he still had hope, and a strong sense of determination; it was the combination of these personality traits that kept him alive.
