Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The autobiography Forgotten Memories by Art Rodriguez, the narrator Art reminisces about the good ol’ times in the streets of Los Angeles. He starts the book by envisioning a certain night in his past full of recklessness with his friend Philip, where he goes on about all his crazy adventures with his group “the wild boys”. This book reflects a journey with a troubled teen becoming a man, as well as how the juvenile court system works. I would personally give this book a four out of five because of how it engages reader in its honest context. I took a lot out of this novel like what it means to grow up with an abusive father and how it can affect you in the long run. I would recommend this book to teens everywhere who can relate to growing up in rough environments and becoming an adult too young.
