    1. It wasn’t my favorite that we’ve read, but I felt like it had some good lessons about not judging others for what we see before us, helping those less fortunate and being a good friend. I’ve read a lot of memoirs and always find it difficult to believe that people can remember exact conversations, so yes there were parts that felt forced and unrealistic. I read up on Denver and he has since passed away. He also had a daughter that was never mentioned in the book and I thought that was interesting.
