He tells Tito Boy the story of how he was at a reunion with the Pempengcos and how they had told her countless stories about him. When asked on the reason why he wrote the book, Jake replies the he wanted to let everyone know that it’s possible to survive the hardships and that he wanted to show everyone how he got through his problems, which is very similar to what most of the youth today are experiencing.
