Well Said: Either You're In or You're In the Way

"Balancing our emotions turned out to be one of the greatest challenges. The loss was so fresh. Early on, the pain could hit at any time. But we had to push on. We had to be leaders." - Either You're In or You're In The Way by Logan and Noah Miller
Goodreads blurb: "When identical twin brothers Logan and Noah Miller's homeless father died alone in a jail cell, they vowed, come hell or high water, that their film,Touching Home, would be made as a dedication to their love for him. Without a dime to their names nor a single meaningful contact in Hollywood—they managed to write, produce, direct, and act in a feature film alongside four-time Academy Award-nominated actor Ed Harris and fellow nominees Brad Dourif and Robert Forster. The book tells of the desperate struggle of two sons fighting to keep a vow to their father, and in so doing, creating a better life for themselves. A modern-day Horatio Alger on steroids, this fast-paced thrill ride of heartbreak and redemption will both captivate and inspire."

  11. Wow! I love the sound of this one and will definitely catch the movie if I ever get the chance. I think a book/story/movie written as a dedication to someone could easily snug into my heart and live there for quite awhile. Would really love to read this one myself!
