Book Review - Reggie


By Reggie Dabbs, John Driver

This book as the title suggests is based on the life of Reggie who finds out in second grade that his parents are not his real parents. His birth was as a result of a 20 dollar deal his mother made to obtain food when she was just sixteen years old. His past was not what you might call good and while the news did affect him it did not stop him making a future for himself.

We are taken through Reggie's life and as we watch him grow up we see the lessons he learnt and how we might apply those lessons in our lives. I think there should be something in this story that most of us can associate with and there are questions and discussions at the end of each chapter to help readers think through the events in the story.

I found this to be an inspiring read which should appeal to people from all walks of life and may help us to see life from a very different perspective.
