This book goes back and forth with thoughts and experiences Robert and Michael are going through. They are both still trying to learn about themselves, life and their paths and they want to go on. Michael goes back to visit the place he grew up in and is caught up in a drive-by shooting that changes his mindset on life. Robert is at wits end with the city he's living in and after all that he's been through, his goal to be a motivational speaker. This takes him to a place he thought he would never live. You will see and realize that sometimes in order to achieve your goals and dreams, you must make certain sacrifices and decisions to get there. Part of it is personal growth and the other part of it is leaving the city you've always known.
