You know the parable of the prodigal son… this is not that story. Yes, the son and father have a falling out and the son goes his own way.
He might even hit rock bottom.
But this story is just as much about the group of people he meets as it is about him. He falls into a close knit group who than teach him how to get a backbone, how to fight, and how to love. He finds out that not all family is blood. Not everyone is who they look.
He finds his own way and does not just crawl back.
Read it, it is short (like your attention span.) and easy reading (just like your reading ability.)
