About the Book



Odell Staggers Where I Live is an all-too real story for many of our children but his is a message of hope and courage. While this is a beautifully illustrated children's book, Staggers pulls no punches and well he shouldn't. Oscar lives in an environment that saps children of opportunity and could easily drive him down a dangerous path of violence, drugs and despair. Instead, Oscar finds true value from a lesson taught in school.
