Worth every penny - read, and reread worthy!

The can be very relatable

The reason I like This book is Because it’s relatable and since it’s a memoir the book has true events that happened to William and some things he does and talks about can make you feel like your reading about your own life which would make you want to read more. People who should read this book are people who like remembering their younger days and really like experiencing nostalgia and it’s also for people who like stories about People adapting to new environments and determination. All and all I don’t read many books but this is one I wouldn’t mind reading
