A new summer read to add to your list!
Tenaka Campbell walks out of prison at thirty-five years old, numb and uncertain. He leaves behind everything that�s been taken; seventeen years of his life, half of his existence. He hears the lions roar behind him as a last reminder of the jungle he�s survived. However, the ambush awaits him just ahead.
Tenaka has used every tool at his disposal to reconstruct his life and character. He has won the mind and heart of a twenty-two year old student at Hampton University who wants the best for him. So much so, she introduces Tenaka to a promising and beautiful professor whom he struggles to relate to socially and personally. The reality; no amount of reading, meditation and religion in prison can exceed what he needs the most�practice for all his theory.
A penniless Tenaka is greeted by a childhood friend, Antwan, who is unemployed but rich. The gate closes; locking him out of the world he�s grown to understand and forcing him to face a future in what feels like a foreign land. No more than a minute ticks into his freedom before he has run out of instructions. Ambivalence: The Beginning
