There are fewer still being the only big brother to 250 boys in an orphanage. But if you keep busy, you stumble into opportunities to help. And if youre clueless, you dont know better than to attempt the improbable.

And if youre clumsy, you trip over lifes lessons at every turn. For more than 100 years, a small band of nuns have run Alpha Boys School in Kingston, caring for the abandoned, abused and delinquent boys of Jamaica. From 1984 - 1986, they allowed the author to share their world. He was one of many people during those years who lived on the periphery of the boys lives, trying to help, and trying to understand.

He saw the relationships the boys built with each other, which kept them from being completely alone in the world. Whether from the inside or the out, they all lived at the orphanage edge. All of the authors proceeds from this book go to support the work of the Mercy Sisters and the Jesuits in Jamaica.
