This is the true story of Lee, a fat, throwaway kid born into financial and emotional poverty as the child of an alcoholic father. His ability to mentally remove himself, even in a crowd of people, was a coping mechanism Lee used to escape his painful circumstances. Though plagued with a constant cycle of disappointment and failure, Lee found in the midst of his challenges the blessing of significant people who helped set him on a better path. This unique true narrative is told through a series of meetings between Lee and an educator who saw something special in Lee at age 12 and ultimately accompanied Lee through his extraordinary journey into his adult life. Alone in a Crowd is a must-read for anyone who desires to make an indelible, positive impact on children.
