A Chance To is a heartwarming true story of a young man who finds his way out of bleak poverty with a steadfast determination in spite of constant challenges. Darius Pettway, born and raised in inner-city Detroit, Michigan, achieved the dream of college education by combining the self-discipline he learned in sports with the common sense and ethics his mother and grandmother instilled in him. This inspiring read recounts his struggles and the lessons he learned. His story gives hope to other youth whose struggles seem insurmountable.
