New York, NY (PRWEB) February 21, 2004 -
ÂThe book tells the true story of Mr. Hall, who, as a gay Black inner-city teen, was sentenced to eight months in prison after committing check fraud at the age of 18. He candidly reveals his life during those turbulent months, during which he got involved in the self-destructive world of drugs and illicit sex, and tried to put a permanent end to it all by attempting suicide. He also talks about how he was able to survive his ordeal with the support of his family, especially his mother, his faith in God, and the few genuine friendships he formed with other inmates at the prison.
ÂReginaldÂs story not only shows us prison life through the eyes of a gay teen, but also the challenges of growing up Black and gay in the inner city,Â said Earl Cox, President and Chief Executive of Earl Cox & Associates Worldwide and Writersandpoets.com, LLC. ÂHis story is important because it provides insight into the minds of AmericaÂs gay youth.Â
