Except for his pleasant disposition and his never-ending grin, hes pretty much of a failure in the classroom [and] in sports. Emma pushes him to develop goals and ambitions so that he can amount to something and escape the poverty that she has known all her life. The lives of Bo and his strong-willed mother begin to change when the beautiful, unloved Shara decides that the thing she wants most in life is a child who will give her the love her own family has denied her. [The book], a tender, moving story about learning how to grow up, recounts how Bo and Shara, with Emmas help, finally overcome many of [their] problems ... Bo finds success in a way no other young man at his school has ever tried, and Shara, who finally has her child, comes to realize that she too, must amount to something for the sake of her baby. -Back cover.
