Unedited But not bad for a first time writer, May 8
ByJ Funches- In my opion this book was a good leap into the writers guild. Anyone would have to say that it is a truly original piece. I havent completly finished reading the book but it becomes more interesting as I flip through the pages. Like all books it has its weak points, but some of the unbelieveable humor in it takes away from you being concerned with those weaknesses.
Some parts in the book made it seem like he thinks he is the center of the universe, but who doesn't think that about themselves. Many parts of the book will make you laugh at times because of some of the things he said he has actually done. But more and more over many may say that there is laughter in the truth.
In writing this book I think the author was trying to define his life in a way that you will see that being alone at times will cause you to feel like you where the blame for everything that happens bad in your life. I Don't Want to Die All Alone is exactly what he is trying to say. And by doing some of the things he has claimed he did will put you in that category right with him.
In close I must say that the author's first attempt at a non fiction novel was a well felt one and other should be motivated to tell it like it is if they desire too.
Excellent reading for today's youth, June 13

Henderson's book offers a personal insight to the harse world of child abuse and survival on the streets of the 'hood'. To see him survive this cruel environment and become a model citizen is an inspiration to people everywhere.
I highly recommend this book, especially to teenagers and young adults.
