From the Publisher:
After he was almost killed in an apartment fire while his mother went to buy drugs, Gerald was raised by his aunt. Then one day, six years later, his mother returns with her new husband and Angel, Gerald's little sister. As the children grow up, it becomes more and more apparent that Angel needs Gerald's protection from her father's abuse. But who will protect Gerald? Young Adult.
Annotation:
When his mother leaves him at home while she goes to buy drugs, 3-year-old Gerald Nickelby accidentally starts a fire and is badly burned. Afterward, his mother is charged with child neglect and sentenced to jail, and Gerald is sent to live with his firm but loving Aunt Queen. Six years later, after his mother is released from jail and Aunt Queen dies of a heart attack, Gerald goes to live with his mother and her new husband, Jordan. Unhappy with the situation, Gerald finds comfort through his relationship with his 4-year-old half-sister, Angel, who was born while his mother was incarcerated. When Gerald realizes that Jordan is sexually abusing Angel, he does everything in his power to save her.
