"Reviewed By Pikasho Deka for Readers' Favorite

The Unexpected Journey: Fire and Gold is an absorbing rendition of true events where author Dedrick L. Moone describes his life experiences as a black disabled father trying to raise a daughter in contemporary America. After losing his job due to discrimination and constant harassment, Mr. Moone tries to find his own way. Meanwhile, his seven-year-old daughter is getting bullied by a friend with malicious intent. When systematic struggles with the legal system shut down all doors, Mr. Moone is left with no choice but to appeal to President Obama himself, of which he responds with an empathetic authority. While his fight against unethical abuse continues, he is forced to relocate to the state of North Carolina and suffers from constant bouts of insomnia and depression. Powerful and gut-wrenching, The Unexpected Journey: Fire and Gold deeply resonates with the common man of today's working-class all over. Author Dedrick L. Moone pulls no punches in showcasing the horrors plaguing the working class of contemporary America and provides plenty of practical examples of how to counter them. Dedrick L. Moone's narrative feels authentic and rings true, and he delves into his real-life experiences in spectacular fashion to explore the troubles facing contemporary America. The usage of actual events and exhausting court battles provide the narrative with an added sense of urgency and legitimacy that is difficult to shrug off. At the end of the memoir, I couldn't help but appreciate Dedrick L. Moone's resolve and applauded the comeuppance that his detractors rightly deserved. Highly recommended."
