Sinopsis: This is the amazing true life story of 20-year old Sydney Humphreys, 2005 graduate of Evanston Township High School. All who know Syd can easily vouch for his gift for storytelling, and it is a gift which is used incredibly in these pages. If you are looking for a thrilling, shocking, compelling book, this is it. And it is a true story; this is Syd's real past and present life. The abuse, the despair, the betrayal, the bloodshed, the love, the hate, the sins, the revenge, and all the troubling questions are all real. But just remember one thing as you read: this is a story with a purpose. It is not storytelling for storytelling's sake, but it is a loving story for the sakes of all of the real people who play a part in it, a special two in particular, as well as you who are willing to read it. All of you were in mind as this work was constructed, you who upon lowering your heads and opening your hearts find yourself in one way or another to be on a similar path as this kid named Syd.
About the Author: Sydney "Syd" Humphreys Jr. is an artist and author from Evanston, Illinois. Humphreys, a graduate of Evanston Township High School and currently in the Law Enforcement program at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, IL, has created cover art for two books in print by Traveling Poet LLC, and in 2009 released his first authored work, a self-published autobiography entitled Syd the Kid. Humphreys' works are strongly influenced thematically by the combination of his jovial personality and his traumatic childhood experiences of abuse and loss. Humpreys credits his father as his greatest positive influence and his mother as his greatest fear and enemity growing up. As described in his autobiography, an early divorce between his parents combined with false accusations by Mrs. Humphreys against Mr. Humphreys led to the Humphreys children, including Syd, growing up apart from their loving father with the extremely abusive Mrs. Humphreys. Through many terrifying, painful, life-changing experiences, Syd struggled from an early age with the most difficult yet most important questions of life. The aftermath of his childhood, including key broken relationships which he desires to heal, inspired Syd to write his life story through his eyes. It is his hope to help others understand the implications of their every day decisions especially in light of life's challenges, as he has learned that one's character development, relationships, and indeed overall future are shaped by and from these often unconscious decisions.
