In this beautiful autobiography, Pabon completely opens his heart in the sharing of his experiences and feelings with respect to the incessant, prodigious challenges of his early life. It is a most riveting and compelling read that above all else brings to light Pabon's triumph into his own self-awareness, unbridled optimism for humanity, kindness, and service to others. What an amazing book, and an even more incredible person!

Eddie's book The Son Will Rise in December was moving, inspiring , heartbreaking and motivating all at once. The narrator does such a great job at depicting the innocence of a child and perspective. The story line is such a motivation it truly does bring hope and light for any reader. This book encourages communities to instill healing and self awareness into our lives.

Great story of perseverance and determination, despite having all against him!
He fell so.many times but his spirit never gave up! Eddie is a true writer,
he presented his life story and he poured it all out sincerely. That's what I felt reading.it.

I can’t say enough about this book. The story is so compelling you don’t wanna put it down. Every chapter makes you feel more and more for what Eddie and his family went through. You’ll find yourself hating some people in the book, but you’ll always be rooting for others like his mom (who I’m honored to share a birthday with). I’m close to my mom so having to hear all he went through with his mom was heartbreaking. Without giving too much away from the book I do have to say I have an even deeper appreciation for the people in my life after reading this. What I really learned from Eddie’s story is that you should never take anything or anybody for granted and that although tomorrow is never promised, you should always look forward to it. Thank you Eddie for sharing this and helping us see life through your eyes.

Eddie writes through his heart. You can tell the kind of good, decent man he is just by the way he so eloquently shares his story. He endured the impossible and came out a stronger, more humble, and genuinely compassionate man. This is one of those stories you need to read to understand the triumph of the human spirit over inescapable odds.

Incredible story filled with struggles, trauma, and disappointments. Great example of how one person who has gone through trauma at such a young age and can overcome all the struggles they have experienced. Eddie's story can help give others hope for those who are going through similar or worse conditions. I highly recommend this book, I give it a 5 star rating.
