TJ is stuck in a between sort of place. His life "then" with a criminally neglectful mother may be behind him, but life "now" with new adoptive parents has yet to truly begin. He's had a difficult time opening up to his new mom and dad, but then he's always had his little sister Angela to keep him busy. Except now he doesn't. She's lying in a hospital bed and TJ is in the waiting room, hoping for a miracle, with nothing but time to reflect upon his old life and examine the new.

TJ tells an emotionally gripping story. He and Angela are sweet, funny, and occasionally maddening real kids that are portrayed with such honesty that as a parent, you can't help but want to bring them home and make everything better.

For young people in foster care, or with a history of abuse this portrayal of a young boy examining the path behind him and moving forward in his life is sure to ring true and provide inspiration.
