Wes was amazed as he watched how little the game had changed: the corner boys still pulling lookout, the muscle still looking as intimidating as ever. Wes watched as, across the street, a young man no older than sixteen pulled out a wad of cash, held together by a rubber band, and began showing it off to a friend. Lines of heads circled the block looking for their next hit. Some of the players had changed, but the positions were the same.

For fans of The Wire and Unbroken comes a story of two fatherless boys from Baltimore, both named Wes Moore. One is in prison, serving a life sentence for murder. The other is a Rhodes Scholar, an army veteran, and an author whose book is being turned into a movie produced by Oprah Winfrey.   The story of “the other Wes Moore” is one that the author couldn’t get out of his mind, not since he learned that another boy with his name—just two years his senior—grew up in the same Baltimore neighborhood. He wrote that boy—now a man—a letter, not expecting to receive a reply. But a reply came, and a friendship grew, as letters turned into visits and the two men got to know each other. Eventually, that friendship became the inspiration for Discovering Wes Moore, a moving and cautionary tale examining the factors that contribute to success and failure—and the choices that make all the difference.   Two men. One overcame adversity. The other suffered the indignities of poverty.

I liked Wes Moore's story so much that I wish I had like it even more. His story was compelling and honestly told. He didn't pull punches and he also avoided either the phony glamorization or the sordid wallowing in his life in a dangerous neighborhood and his escape from it. I liked this book and the young man who so sincerely wrote it. I gave it only four stars because there was some sense of analysis that I was missing. But, that, perhaps, was his point--there is no way to explain why or how one young man succeeds and another down the very same street does not. Congratulations to Mr. Moore on being able to write such a challenging book.

Great book! I had purchased 30 of these from another company to use in my classroom. Then I ordered 8 more from Amazon. I started them in class today and the kids loved it! And then they reached page 24....the first of dozens of blank pages.....so disappointing.

An interesting adaptation of the author's original memoir. Very well suited to the YA audience it was written for. Great story about choices and opportunities.

When I was a college intern leading a reading group, it helped me to relate to my students and Wes is a man that is from my neighborhood. The Bronx is where I am from and made Baltimore my home. We share similar experiences and has also helped me become a better parent. However, he is an awesome leader and an exceptional motivator.

My rising 8th grader had to read this as part of his summer reading assignment. He completely enjoyed it and it kept his attention. He read it in a couple of sittings.

As a 12 year old it was important to read that your environment does not define you. I found the book to be inspiring. I acknowledge that although one makes mistakes it takes wisdom to take responsibility and what follows is a call for action. My mother always says "with awareness comes action."
I enjoyed the book very much
This book was for my son's summer reading. He enjoyed the book and that was exciting to me because getting a teenager boy to read is no easy task.
