What do you do when your mother doesn’t have time for you, the kids at school taunt you and you can’t sit still enough to learn your lessons? What do you do when you’re on your own to grow up and you don’t have someone to teach you how to act. The St. Joe Kid is a memoir of a man who rose above his bleak childhood and grew into courage and healing.
“Following Paul’s life was nothing short of inspiring. Paul’s life was so typical of the nearly 15 million children in this country at risk for post-traumatic stress disorder. In a perfect world, they would all grow up to discover what Paul managed to find out, that even in the most horrible circumstances, the human spirit can overcome.”
