Were you born with a reckless mother? Have you ever had an abusive stepfather? Some people grow up having a hard life, dealing with drama, and fighting through struggles. That's the problem that Gerald has to deal with in the book Forged By Fire.

Gerald is a kid with a troubled past and a troubled future. With all his struggles and losses he still survives. As a young boy his mother leaves him alone; he starts a fire and almost dies. His mother is immediately arrested for child abandonment and sent to prison. Gerald's Aunt Queen takes him in and raises him by herself. He quickly adapts to her lifestyle. Then tragedy strikes! Sadly his loving aunt dies. What’s going to happen now?

This book is very interesting and you can't wait what happens next. It’s kind of addicting because once you read it, you wouldn’t want to stop. This book is filled with upcoming surprises. When you get deep into this book you will be caught up in some excruciating events. For example, when Jordan and Angel are home alone or another suspenseful moment is when Gerald has a final confrontation against Jordan. Tension, tragedy, and drama rises in every moment.

Well I recommend this book to anyone who’s interested in an entertaining book like this. This book is neither comedy nor horror but it’s dramatic, emotional, and action/violent. You may think it’s rewarding with craziness but it’s worth reading it. Even if you don’t relate to this book, I still recommend you to try it out!
