With realism, honor and a lot of humor, this modern-day fable covers both the struggle of a young boy's coming of age and the principles of the African-American cultural celebration Kwanzaa. After tragedy strikes his small family, 13-year-old Jordan is at a crossroads: It's his time to become an honorable man like his father, but will he choose that path? Gregory T. Daniel's portrayal of Jordan makes listeners sympathetic to his difficult life choices. Through the guidance of a family friend, Jordan learns to apply the principles of Kwanzaa to his daily life and passes over the threshold of becoming a man. Daniel brings energy and reverence to a tale that will teach, as well as entertain, adults and children alike. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 97]
