Annotation:  Based on a true story, FatherHoodlum is the captivating and inspirational story of Lamont B. Moody, who grew up in a Newark, New Jersey housing project.
At 18-years-old, he made his first trip to prison, and spent the next 10-years in and out of prison for parole violations and new offenses.
After parole from prison, at age 28-years-old, he decided to start a new life 60-miles away from Newark in the city of Trenton, New Jersey.
Shortly after parole, Lamont gains custody of his eight-year-old son, LJ, who was getting suspended from school and had also been arrested for burglary, back in Newark. He brings his son to live with him in Trenton.
He was determined that LJ would not become just another black boy being primed for the prison system.
They (the prison system) may have gotten me, but I’ll be damned if they will get my son.” FatherHoodlum brings the reader through a journey down the corridors of raw street life and then uplifts the reader with restored hope and faith in one man's determination and commitment to overcome his past and become a positive role model and guide for his son.
This story has a spirit that the reader can feel. This story transcends the literal environment and setting into a connection which readers of any background can identify.
Jackson infuses an atmosphere of hope and inspiration in his novel.
