Surrounding environment takes a big role in shaping a person and creating one’s personalities. Edgar Allan Poe, an American writer, is an excellent example for this.

Yes, I would recommend the book, “Ghetto Cowboy” by G. Neri to a friend. I would recommend it to a friend because of it’s unique and emotional subject matter, which was inspired by a true event!
