The Boy Who Survived

by Alton Carter

At the age of nine, Alton Carter left home and walked himself into foster care with a dream of someday having a normal life. Not a fancy life. Not a rich life. No, he dreamed of a life without abuse and with regular meals, a warm home in the winter, and a family that made sure you got to school each day on time. Building on his award-winning books The Boy Who Carried Bricks and Aging Out, Carter shares more of his own personal stories of survival and hope.
