Have you ever felt a sense of inadequacy? Maybe you've felt stuck and couldn't see an exit from this maze of hardships? Or maybe you've always wanted a hint of hope and a small taste of success?
In this memoir, you will dig deep into the mind and life of a young Caucasian man who grew up in a predominantly African-American area of Philadelphia, PA. On the harsh city streets, this young man struggled with being misunderstood by both sides of the spectrum, considered "too ghetto" for some peers and "too proper" for others.
In the midst of trying to find his way, he had to cope with a horrific tragedy that had a profound effect on his family, as well as the tragic loss of a friend. He faced the mental turmoil of those who disapproved of him dating outside of his race, which ultimately destroyed a number of personal relationships.
Despite the obstacles in his path, this man would finally go on to become a social advocate for today's troubled youth. Not only did he overcome the bitterness of his past, he also learned how to channel his own demons without living life in the fast lane. He would rekindle his spiritual relationship with God, in whom he draws his strength and his well-being.

About the Author

Jeff Jaskolka is a Caucasian man born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He grew up in a harsh urban community and was raised by two amazing blue-collar working parents and two wonderful sisters. Jeff came up as a youth through the Catholic School system but he does not practice under the Catholic Religion. Throughout his life Jeff had claimed many different faiths.

Jeff is now married to an beautiful, strong African-American woman and they have one daughter together.

Jeff always had a passion for writing. When he was about 12 or 13 he would write many poems and give them to whoever his crush was at the time to try and win them over. People used to read them and compliment him on how good he was as a writer. Jeff realized his writing talent even more at about age 15 when he would go on and write song lyrics for Rap songs. He would go on to use his own lyrics to record his own Rap demos and mix tapes and he also ghost written lyrics for other local Rap artists.

He went on to make rap music until about age 21 and then life circumstances happened causing him to lose interest. As Jeff matured throughout the years he decided that he really wanted to write and publish his own books instead of being a rap artist. Jeff began writing his first book at age 27.

Jeff is a strong advocate for Mental Health Awareness.
