Steve Pemberton is an AMAZING person. He endured horrific abuse in the foster care system. Thanks to the kindness of a neighbor, he found hope and the possibilities of a different future through reading books.
His memoir and the recent movie, A Chance In the World, are both well worth it! I highly recommend them.
I had the good fortunate to meet Steve at an event. He has made it his mission in life to ensure all people are included and valued.
The video clip includes some thoughts on narrative arc and the great job Steve did of hooking the reader and keeping them turning the page.
