By fifteen, he can no longer ignore his burning desire for an education, and, despite his fathers disapproval, Billson decides to go to school. But it will be an uphill battle. His family is struggling to survive, most of his siblings have never attended school, and illiteracy is a fact of life in this part of the world. But Billson is determined to change his future.

Never, Ever Too Late For Education is the inspirational story of a boy who is determined to alter his bleak circumstances, no matter what the cost.
