- “Wes Moore has not just written a compelling story, but has created a perfect case study of how and why young men can go down the wrong path — and how they can be saved.”

- “Wes Moore gives me hope. He is a shining beacon to the younger generation that ignorance, illiteracy, and violence can no longer be badges of honor in our communities; that integrity, humility, and accountability matter.”
