A natural storyteller, Chris Wilson delivers an engaging narration that pulls no punches as he recounts aspects of his childhood in Washington, DC, his eventual path to prison at age 17, and his personal transformation. Realizing the full weight of his life sentence at 19, Wilson decided to make a change--many changes actually, which resulted in a "master plan" that evolved over two decades of incarceration and continues to ground him since his hard-won release. Wilson's mid-Atlantic accent comfortably situates his story in a specific place, but his insights about race and incarceration, recidivism and second chances are applicable anywhere in America. Narrating the foreword, writer Wes Moore emphatically reminds listeners of the universality of Wilson's story as well as the singularity of the man telling it.
