Hole in my Life by Jack Gantos
Jack Gantos is a hugely popular children’s book author who wrote the very successful Joey Pigza series. But in his teen years, he made poor decisions that led him to being put into prison on drug smuggling charges. Prison life forced him to look at his life and make some really hard decisions.
As I was reading it, I learned some of the horrible aspects of prison (Trust me, you never want to go to prison!), and I learned that I was lucky to have people in my life guide me into making the right decisions. Gantos seemed to almost go with the flow of his life, and it got him into serious trouble.
This book is a fantastic read with great description and insight into the life of Jack Gantos, very famous children’s book author.
