In this groundbreaking book, Lilian outlines problems being faced by the boy-child and the underlying societal outcry in this era. She particularly uses close comparisons with current set environment attributing to more males in prisons, gun-violence indulgence, suicide, depression, drug use and substance use, and abuse among other things. She defines possible reasons for the dimmed light in boys.

The hypothesis in this book does not claim to have all answers to the setbacks on the boy-child or any gender controversy. Using her personal experiences as a single mother of a boy and interacting closely with male figures through family and work, she gives possible roots of the problems. But one thing for sure, you will connect with and relate with her thoughts and ideas toward igniting back the flame in our sons. And therefore, champion toward making them realize their positions and purpose in the society.
