Recently, many teens have been asking for the book Forged by Fire by Sharon M. Draper. It has been a number of years since I read this gripping book and I wondered what spurred a new interest in the title. I soon found out that a local teacher had assigned the book as a summer reading assignment.
"If you don't sit your stinkin' useless butt back down..."
so begins the novel Forged by Fire by Sharon M. Draper
Gerald knows he must survive the abuse of his drug addicted mother; beatings, burnings and verbal abuse. Gerald knows he must survive so he can protect his sister from their mother's cruel boyfriend.
