    Summary: 
    The remarkable memoir of George Obama, President Obama's Kenyan half brother, who found the inspiration to strive for his goal--to better the lives of his own people--in his elder brother's example. The father they shared died when George was six months old. George was a star pupil at a top boarding school, but after his mother and stepfather separated when he was fifteen, his life crashed and burned. He dropped out of school and soon gravitated to Nairobi's vast ghetto, where he discovered a special affinity with the slum kids, whom he helped survive amid grinding poverty and despair. In 2006, George met his older half brother, then-U.S. senator Barack Obama, for the first time since he was five. He was inspired by his older brother's example to try to change the lives of his people, the ghetto-dwellers, for the better.--From publisher description.
