One..Zero...Nine.is a coming of age story that allows the reader to have an intimate look within the author's mind set. Get to know the meaning of three numbers that will take the reader on a roller-coaster ride of laughter, sadness, anger, love, empathy and realism. The book provides a chronological order of life events that are connected, tied and branded by the numbers 1 zero 9. Plunge into the book as Joey's adolescent carnal decisions mold his early adulthood and how one tragic window opens to another portal of love and success. Accompany Joey on his humorous and triumphant life journey through the roughest years of his life. Metamorphic, Joey comes full circle and changes his lenses to see clearly a new young girl in his life. He extracts strength from his supportive community and family - just like an alley-oop pass in the game of basketball - and comes out on top with a dunk. 1 zero 9 is a must-read not only for the average Joe, but for teenagers, parents, college and graduate students, social workers, teachers, professionals, the president of The United States and anyone else that will take the time to read.
