New York Times best-selling investigative journalist Ron Suskind based this book on his Pulitzer Prize winning articles about Cedric Jennings, a black youth struggling to survive one of D.C.'s toughest school districts. A moving portrait of inner city life, A Hope in the Unseen offers a view of life through the eyes of someone trying desperately to make his way up from the bottom.

Great Story

I had read the paper copy of this long before I decided to listen to it. It is a great true story and it is well worth the time it will take to get through it. I found myself rooting for Cedric and his dreams. It is very inspirational.

Amazing Perspective

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this book is important for anyone engaged in higher education or learning. The tilt is slightly in the direction of the culture in private education, but it is easy to relate to public universities. Highly recommended!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Once I started, I did not want to stop the story!
