The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates/Wes Moore/250 pgs.
There are two Wes Moore's--both were born in Baltimore, lived a few blocks apart, and were raised without a father. In one case, the one Wes Moore's father died when Wes was young; the other Wes's father was absent by choice. It's a fascinating story how choices made, opportunities, and differing support systems resulted in one Wes Moore becoming a Rhodes Scholar, successful businessman, etc., and the other Wes Moore ends up in prison serving a life sentence. It's a timely read, and highly recommended.
