After living with his aunt for many years, Gerald must now live with his mother, a recovering addict; his violent stepfather; and his half-sister, Angel. As Gerald grows from boy to young man and his bond with Angel deepens, he must struggle to protect her and himself from the physical and sexual abuse in their home. Thomas Penny's rich voice is easy to listen to. He can change his voice lightly for the feminine roles without straining, and each character has a distinctive tone. The suspense of the story and Penny's performance will make listeners care deeply about Gerald and Angel. J.M.P. 2003 YALSA Selection (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
