American Familia is a raw, inspirational memoir that proves the American Dream is alive and well, if you’re willing to work for it. Part storytelling, part rallying cry, this book delivers a vision of hope for discounted youth that they, too, can transcend their environment and situation and achieve the American Dream.

"David shares his personal candid account of growing up in Puerto Rico and Lynn, MA as told to his young adolescent sons. His book tells not only his determination and grit to achieve the American Dream but also how multi-generational faith, prayer and the guidance of others has shaped his life. There is a message of hope and determination that readers will find inspiring and hopefully challenge all of us to mentor young adults and others who need encouragement and direction."

"This is a wonderful, heart-warming memoir in which a father tells his life story to his teenage sons while his wife listens. I'm giving it five stars because I enjoyed listening to the audio, and appreciate the intention of the book. I feel inspired and wish I'd read this as a teenager rather than as an old lady. It is good for any age, but I'd say it is essential for teenagers of all cultures. Great food for thought!"

"As you read this true story, you see that there were so many times the Author could have taken the wrong path on his life's journey and had good excuses to make for those decisions. Instead, the Author channeled his anger from his circumstances (living amongst poverty and death) and his family's belief that God meant him for something great as motivation to better himself. With this motivation and his faith in God and that God will provide the opportunities, the Author shows that with grit and determination, America is truly the land of opportunity where everybody can live on Pine Hill. Wonderful memoir and excellent book!"

"David's story argues that the opportunity of the journey lies before us all, choosing the path is the hard part. No one succeeds alone, and David rightly points to all those who inspired him; especially his family, teachers, and coaches to make choices along the way. His willingness to share anecdotes that elicit raw emotion of rage, despair, and love draws the reader to a very personal human connection of feelings that relate to our own disparate lives."

"One of the best memoirs I have ever read. I was able to understand, empathize, relate as well as appreciate the author's life and struggles. In addition to a well-written story, the narrator completed the experience."
