"Pemberton's beautifully told story is a rags to riches^journey-beginning in a place and with a jarring set of experiences that could^have destroyed his life. But Steve's refusal to give in to those forces, and^his resolve to create a better life, shows a courage and resilience that is an^example for many of us to follow." -Stedman Graham, Author, Educator

^^
Home is the place where our life stories begin. It is where^we are understood, embraced, and accepted. It is a sanctuary of safety and^security, a place to which we can always return. Down in the dank basement,^amid my moldy, hoarded food and worm-eaten books, I dreamed that my real home,^the place where my story had begun, was out there somewhere, and one day I was^going to find it.

^^
Taken from his mother at age three, Steve Klakowicz lives a^terrifying existence. Caught in the clutches of a cruel foster family and^subjected to constant abuse, Steve finds his only refuge in a box of books^given to him by a kind stranger. In these books, he discovers new worlds he can^only imagine and begins to hope that one day he might have a different^life-that one day he will find his true home. A fair-complexioned boy with blue^eyes, a curly Afro, and a Polish last name, he is determined to unravel the^mystery of his origins and find his birth family. Armed with just a single^clue, Steve embarks on an extraordinary quest for his identity, only to learn^that nothing is as it appears. A Chance^in the World is the unbelievably true story of a wounded and broken boy^destined to become a man of resilience, determination, and vision. Through it^all, Steve's story teaches us that no matter how broken our past, no matter how^great our misfortunes, we have it in us to create a new beginning and to build^a place where love awaits.
