This is an amazing book. I read it all the time. I read it like a million times after I read it the first time. Anyways, I can relate to this book. I don't want to say my home life but I can relate to it. This book made me cry. I'm not going to lie on that part. No kid should have to go through this. They should have a healthy life. Those kids are there to protect each other. Those kids probably hate the parents. I would to.This book is amazing, My favorite book!

SHARON DRAPER IS AN EXCELLENT WRITER!.
I WOULD LOVE TO BECOME A WRITER JUST AS EXCELLENT AS HER.

THIS BOOK HAS INSPIRED ME IN SO MANY WAYS. I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY PARENTS HAVE TO BE ADDICTED TO DRUGS & ABUSE THEY'RE CHILDREN. ITS ASHAME THAT GERALD HAD TO WAIT SO LONG TO TELL SOMEONE ABOUT HIS LITTLE SISTER ANGEL BEING ABUSED. BUT IM GLAD HE DID TELL SOMEONE. GERALD DID THE RIGHT THING. BUT SOME YEARS LATER GERALD'S STEDFATHER CAME BACK.=(. I ENJOYED THIS BOOK SO MUCH I ALWAYS WANT TO READ IT OVER & OVER AGAIN. I REALLY THINK THAT THIS BOOK IS GOOD FOR KIDS GROWING UP & THAT IS GOING THROUGH THE SAME THING GERALD & HIS LITTLE SISTER ANGEL WENT THROUGH.

I apologize to those of you who claim that this book is 'excellent', but it wasn't.

Sure, child abuse is horrible and destructive, and I don't argue with that, but couldn't the story have been presented in a far better way? Draper's work is illiterate and simple-minded. In many parts of the book, it seemed as though she'd hit a block in her mind and just wrote whatever popped up first to fill the page. The book wasn't insightful at all, as some of the other comments say - and the characters, frankly, are a bit too shallow for the book to be good. Angel = scared and depressed, constantly, and Gerald = ooh, magical hero that saves everyone!

Not really.

Forged by Fire set my emotions on fire. A powerful read even if you have never been touched by the destruction of child abuse.
