The combination of Adenrele Ojo's lively performance and the author's lyrical writing will make the message in this audiobook jump out at all parents, especially those who worry about the kind of world their child will enter as an adult. Ojo is an accomplished actress, producer, and narrator; you can hear her professional depth as she flawlessly tells the true story of the author, an African-American marketing executive and single mother who was devoted to her disabled son but knew she couldn't raise him without help from adult men. This is exceptional storytelling and wisdom on what it takes to guide a son into responsible adulthood. Brightened by a performance that sounds attention-getting, relaxed, and full of humanity, Howland's words will linger long past the listening. T.W.
