** spoiler alert ** Gerald has a rough life. He survives a totally self-centered mother, appalling neglect, and barely escapes an apartment fire. After a golden couple years with his beloved Aunt Queen, Gerald moves back with his mother, half sister Angel, and sinister step-father. This is unfortunately not an unfamiliar story. I was happy that one of my guesses turned out to be wrong. I did assume that when the child molester gave Angel a pet kitten that the poor cat would meet a horrible end at his hands. I am happy to report that even though the cat spends time in the oven he happily survives to the end of the book.
