The book The Black Boy written by Harnold Bloomt was a very against the odds book. As we see a young boy goes through struggles and has to face many obstacles. He also has to go through odds many grown people have to. As a boy he doesn’t like the fact that he is a black kid who lives in the south with no money. He also doesn’t like the fact that he is a kid and has to be told what to do. He is a very devious, sneaky, smart and wise. But, his choices make him seem like the total opposite. The outcomes of his decisions mostly come out very awry. He has consequences not only for his choices but for his families as well. As he has much time on his hands he teaches himself many skills for life. For example, taking care of his brother and teaching himself how to read and write. Many of these things he teaches himself at twelve most adults in his time still don’t know how to do. Growing up more he realizes that putting up a fight is too much work and it gets old. He decides that since he has the ability to do well and do better things in life, to just do them. The book is based on a true story, so to some people it can really relate to their own personal experiences. I would recommend people to read this if they want to read a devious, chain-reacting, captivating book with much personal, real life relating experiences.
