Family TiesPaperback - 2015
Everyone was shocked when Mr. Henry took teenager D'Ray Reid under his wing - especially after what happened between D'Ray and Mr. Henry's own son, Stanley. Yet, in the years since, Mr. Henry has tried to show D'Ray how to become the man Stanley would never be - one who is caring, vulnerable and has enough self-respect not to try to get ahead using pseudo macho bullshit. D'Ray's ability to apply all that Mr.Henry has taught him is compromised by the community he finds himself in, where boasting about weapons is seen as a way of saying, 'I take myself seriously.'
