Gerald has been in a constantstruggle to find a stable home ever since he was a baby. His mother a drug addict who went to jail for child abandonment. when his mom went to jail gerald stayed with his aun queen. Everything had been fine until his mom showed up the same day aunt queen died. geral had to go live with his mother, 5 year old sister angel and his drunk and angry stepfather. when living there gerald  notices that jordan molests angel. Reading this i felt like if i was in the story i felt geralds fury and angels fright toward jordan. This novel conveys a messege that everyone should be aware of -child abuse should be reported in order for the abuser to receive puishment-.
