Wes Moore recognizes that the decisions of a boy in a poor urban neighborhood had life-changing effects. Moore grew up in the Bronx with a single mother who was determined to protect him. Lousy grades and a run-in with the law convinced his mother to borrow the money to send him to military school. It saved him--Moore became a military officer, a graduate of Johns Hopkins, and a Rhodes Scholar. By contrast, another man of the same name, from a similar background, is in prison for life for felony murder. Moore narrates his story with some occasional over-dramatization, but overall he delivers a heartfelt performance filled with gratitude. This production is an adaptation of his bestseller, THE OTHER WES MOORE, for young adult listeners. A.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2013]
