Bobby's Story is about courage and the power inside all of us.  The story is based on unpleasant events that occurred many years ago in the author's own life.  The character, Bobby, is constantly reminded of his grandfather's powerful words of life, "Wrong is wrong - no matter how many people do it, and that it only takes one person to speak out for what is right - The Power of One!"  After Bobby's parents lose everything, including their jobs, their home, and their dreams, his family is forced to leave all their family and friends behind.  They move to the city with hopes of finding jobs and starting over.  For Bobby, the struggle is about acceptance, not only from his new friends, but his new life.  He needs to reach inside himself to find the inner strength necessary to make new friends, live in poverty, and stand up to the red-haired bully.
