The Other Wes Moore has been named as South’s “One School, One Book” selection for the 2015-2016 school year. This memoir tells the story of two men with the same name who grow up blocks from each other in Baltimore. Despite similar, challenging backgrounds, one becomes a Rhodes Scholar, veteran, and White House fellow, while the other ends up with a life sentence for murder. What led them down such different paths?
