I was assigned this book and I am so glad I read it. It was one of the books that I couldn't put down. I do agree with the comment that says there is too much time passing in too short time but over all it didn't make much of a difference. I think it is really sad to think all those things could really happen to that family in real life. But it makes you think that if you were going through the abuse or even watching the abuse being done what would you do and how? I think it is a great book for ages 10 or 11 and up. I would recommend this book to you!

i think this book is great.....my teacher Mr.Sopko gave me this book thinking i would like it and he was wrong i loved it.......im not really a reader but i love to read this book......this book is my favorite because if kids are goin through what Gerald and Angel are going through this is a great book to tell them what to do if they dont know what to do.......so if your being abused in anyway dont keep it a secret tell someone you trust to help you and they will.......and if people dont like this book i dont care i think this is a great book and i love it:D

"Synopsis" by , Teenage Gerald, who has spent years protecting his fragile half-sister from their abusive father, faces the prospect of one final confrontation before the problem can be solved.
"Synopsis" by , Will Gerald find the courage to stand up to his stepfather?

When his loving aunt dies, Gerald suddenly is thrust into a new home filled with anger and abuse. A brutal stepfather with a flaming temper and an evil secret makes Gerald miserable, and the only light in his grim life is Angel, his young stepsister. Gerald and Angel grow close as he strives to protect her from Jordan, his abusive stepfather, and from their substance-addicted mother. But Gerald learns, painfully, that his post can't be extinguished, and that he must be strong enough to face Jordan in a final confrontation, once and for all....

"Synopsis" by , Fascinated by fire as a child, Gerald accidentally ignited his apartment and was sent to the home of his favorite aunt. Now he's back with his mom--where flames once again determine his future in the explosive sequel to "Tears of a Tiger."
