My heart just broke for Jonathan Anthony Burkett as I read his true story "Neglected But Undefeated". I could feel his pain as he felt unloved and unwanted just by reading his words. This book is filled with stories of a life of struggle, pain and confusion but in spite of these trials, Jonathan came out a winner because he grew from these experiences. It was so sad, yet so uplifting to see that in spite of what other people do, there are still those who are stronger than the storms that plague their lives. I guess we all need reminding at times that we have so very much to be thankful for. This book reminded me of that.
I rate this book a 5 star. . I highly recommend this book but do warn the reader that it is hard to read at times due to the trials that are spoken of. If you want to be reminded that others have trials worse than most of us, this is the book for you.
About the book:
This book is a surprising, dramatic, unbelievable and heartbreaking story of one young man who went through trials and tribulations, feeling unloved, unwanted, never needed, and unexpected, from a lady that he had finally understood was his true mother (the one he was told loved him the most in the world no matter what she does and says to him). Growing up, he feels like there was and could not be any future or purpose for his life because he was being told that he could die any day.
