Games Fiends writes, "Brendan has faced nothing but adversity in his young life. His parents are gone. His neighborhood is riddled with crime and gangs. He watched his very good friend die before his very eyes, and then spent three years in juvenile detention. His is a story that, unfortunately, is repeated in city after city all across America, and most of these young souls never make it out of their cycle of violence and despair. Luckily, Brendan has a couple of things going for him that the others don’t: his newfound faith, and a foster dad who refuses to give up on him. The rest…is up to Brendan."
