When Gerald was a small boy, his mom left him alone in the apartment. A fire started while she was gone and he woke up in the hospital. The courts awarded custody to his aunt while his mother is in jail. A few years later, his mom re-enters the scene with a new husband as well as a daughter. The beloved aunt dies and a whole new cycle of abuse begins, but this one is even worse than the neglect of his childhood. Mom's new husband is physically violent as well as a pedophile. Gerald and his sister Angel become even closer than they already were to find some measure of comfort and protection.

Intense, gripping drama. It's painfully real. Companion/sequel to Tears of a Tiger
