This one was a tough one but very good. 5 Stars. This is the story of Jack. Jack wants to be a writer. Jack helps smuggle drugs into New York City. Jack goes to federal prison. Jack sees horrible things and experiences horrible fear. This is the real story of Jack Gantos.

Very interesting and compelling story , Gantos lays it on the line about his stint in prison and the dumb mistakes at a young age he did to land him there . Honest and straight forward . Yet he went on to become a super funny Author and write good books like he always wanted to . Check out some of the fiction books he's authored , they are quite humorous .

This is the ideal autobiography. It is honest, relatable, and Gantos has a true sense of humor: I rarely laugh from books and this one had me laughing 4 different times! A truly interesting account that leaves me sympathizing with those trying to survive the criminal "justice" system.
