General Note:
"A memoir of survival and hope."
Summary, etc.:
"From iconic NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony comes a raw and inspirational memoir about growing up in the housing projects of Red Hook and Baltimore--a brutal world Where Tomorrows Aren't Promised"-- Provided by publisher.
Living in a first-floor project apartment in Red Hook, Brooklyn, Anthony couldn't dream any bigger than emulating his older brothers and cousins--much less going on to become a basketball champion on the world stage. He navigated an education system that ignored, exploited, or ostracized him; he suffered the untimely deaths of his loved ones. With the strength of family and the guidance of key mentors on the streets and on the court, he pushed past lethal odds to endure and thrive. Here he shares a story of perseverance and determination; of dribbling past players bigger and tougher than him, while also weaving around vial caps and needles strewn across the court; where rims had no nets, and you better not call a foul--a place where tomorrows aren't promised. -- adapted from jacket
