Born Millionaires is a novella-length work of real-life experiences, financial futures and growing up in the outskirts of Atlanta, and was penned by author Mantario Stowers. Recommended for mature readers due to numerous references to sex, violence and coarse language, this deep-set reality story focuses on a trio of characters in Hartwell, Georgia: Truth, Ace, and Siegel. Struggling to focus on the positives in life, we watch this trio attempt to raise themselves out of a world where crime is the norm and the odds of getting out unscathed are slim to none. The novel combines real-life social issues with powerful motivational mindsets for its characters.

A consideration of financial futures from this particular perspective is a rare thing in fiction, but author Mantario Stowers has managed to achieve a truly inspirational tale with a real-world impact for its readers. Though the narrative does sometimes wander a little more towards facts and statistics than the journey of its central characters, the true value in the work is to hold it up as a modern-day parable of what life can be, no matter where you’re born and the environment in which you have to grow up. Against the incredible statistics of crime and violence surrounding them, these characters adopt Stowers’s own strategies and guide themselves to a better tomorrow. Overall, Born Millionaires stands out as an important read for anyone who finds themselves and/or their children in a similar socioeconomic state and is a recommended read for those seeking an authentic authorial voice and real-world empowerment through fiction.
