  1. I’d love to give this book to my son. Shepard is an important to remember, and tolerance is an important lesson to teach.

  7. I remember this event as if it was yesterday. My heart still breaks for his family and the life he was deprived of due to igmorance and evil.
    I love that the Author created her monologues from the point of view from the fence he was tied to, stars that watched over him etc etc.Mathew’s story should be read by every Adult and teen.
