I read this book for the author.
The main character Daniel had a rough time growing up in his neighborhood.
Daniel didnt always like the way his dad looked at things. His dad taught him to do the right thing, not the easy thing.
Daniel struggled with that all his life. Things were suppose to be easier not the same or harder at Hamden Academy.
The lesson I learned from this book is that we really need to stop and think of our actions. Sometimes our actions really do start a domino effect. You do/say something to one person...they do that to someone else etc. What we all really need to do is stop and do the right thing not the easy thing in resolving conflicts. I think the world would be a much better place if we did.
