Book Description :

The inspiring, true coming-of-age story of a ferociously determined young man who, armed only with his intellect and his willpower, fights his way out of despair. In 1993, Cedric Jennings was a bright and ferociously determined honor student at Ballou, a high school in one of Washington D.C.’s most dangerous neighborhoods, where the dropout rate was well into double digits and just 80 students out of more than 1,350 boasted an average of B or better. At Ballou, Cedric had almost no friends. He ate lunch in a classroom most days, plowing through the extra work he asked for, knowing that he was really competing with kids from other, harder schools. Cedric Jennings’s driving ambition—which was fully supported by his forceful mother—was to attend a top college. In September 1995, after years of near superhuman dedication, he realized that ambition when he began as a freshman at Brown University. But he didn't leave his struggles behind. He found himself unprepared for college: he struggled to master classwork and fit in with the white upper-class students. Having traveled too far to turn back, Cedric was left to rely on his intelligence and his determination to maintain hope in the unseen—a future of acceptance and reward. In this updated edition, A Hope in the Unseen chronicles Cedric’s odyssey during his last two years of high school, follows him through his difficult first year at Brown, and tells the story of his subsequent successes in college and the world of work. Eye-opening, sometimes humorous, and often deeply moving, A Hope in the Unseen weaves a crucial new thread into the rich and ongoing narrative of the American experience.

Book Description :

ABOUT THE BOOK Many people have read Ron Suskinds A Hope in the Unseen and been inspired by the story of a boy who used his intelligence, faith, and drive to claw his way up from the ghetto to the Ivory Tower. Some view the book as a scathing commentary on how the American education system fails its students. Yet others wonder what the books message is supposed to be. A call to reform Affirmative Action? A study of what it means to be black in America (as seen through white eyes)? An aggrandizement of the Ivy League? A look at race relations? Class relations? Ron Suskinds 1998 narrative non-fiction A Hope in the Unseen focuses on the story of Cedric Jennings, a boy who managed to make it out of Southeast Washington, DC and gain acceptance into Brown University. Suskind met Cedric while doing a story for The Wall Street Journal on high academic achievers in the dangerous inner city Ballou Senior High School. Unlike the other honor roll students who were afraid to talk to Suskind, Cedric was proud of his achievements and welcomed the reporter into his life. After the article was so successful that it won Suskind a Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing in 1995, the idea for A Hope in the Unseen began to take shape. MEET THE AUTHOR Lacey Kohlmoos is a writer, traveler and lover of the arts. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a BA in Drama & the Studies of Women and Gender, the only thing she knew for sure was that she wanted to travel. So, she embarked on a 10 12 month round-the-world trip, then traveled to Costa Rica where she spent one year teaching elementary school English in a small mountain town. Throughout her two years of travels, she's always kept a blog. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK At Ballou Senior High School in Southeast Washington, DC it is not an uncommon occurrence for fires to be set in the bathrooms, for knife fights to break out in the hallways, and for the classrooms to be only half filled with students. The kids at Ballou have grown up where survival either means becoming a part of the violent culture or trying not to get noticed as you work towards a better life. Cedric Jennings, pushed by his mother Barbara, has vowed to do everything in his power to get out of the ghetto and into an Ivy League University. Unlike the other academic achievers at Ballou, however, Cedric refuses to be ashamed of his achievements and drive. As a result, he is constantly ridiculed with taunts of being a nerd, a whitey, and too proud. Cedric does not deny that he is a proud person, but he is driven by much more than that. Desperate to get her son out of Southeast DC, Barbara has pushed him to achieve academic success and climb the social ladder despite her financial troubles and violent upbringing. A spiritual woman who attends multiple services a week at the Scripture Cathedral, she has instilled in Cedric a strict religious code and strong sense of morals. Cedric also finds support in Mr. Taylor, his chemistry teacher and mentor who often quotes scripture and helps him get into MITs MITES summer achievement program.

The inspiring, unflinching true story of “blind” faith, as Major Scotty Smiley awakes in a hospital bed and realizes his world is permanently dark he must stretch his faith like never before. Courageous, heartfelt, and honest, Hope Unseen challenges readers to question their doubts, not their beliefs, and depend upon God no matter what. A nervous glance from a man in a parked car. Muted instincts from a soldier on patrol. Violent destruction followed by total darkness. Two weeks later, Scotty Smiley woke up in Walter Reed Army Medical Center, helpless . . . and blind. Blindness became Scotty’s journey of supreme testing. As he lay helpless in the hospital, Captain Smiley resented the theft of his dreams—becoming a CEO, a Delta Force operator, or a four-star general. With his wife Tiffany’s love and the support of his family and friends, Scotty was transformed—the injury only intensifying his indomitable spirit. Since the moment he jumped out of a hospital bed and forced his way through nurses and cords to take a simple shower, Captain Scotty Smiley has climbed Mount Rainier, won an ESPY as Best Outdoor Athlete, surfed, skydived, become a father, earned an MBA from Duke, taught leadership at West Point, commanded an army company, and won the MacArthur Leadership Award. Scotty and Tiffany Smiley have lived out a faith so real that it will inspire you to question your own doubts, push you to serve something bigger than yourself, and encourage you to cling to a Hope Unseen.
