Forged by Fire

Forged by Fire is a book about a little boy whose mother is a deadbeat. She would always leave him along in the house by himself. So one day she left him alone with nothing to play with. So he found a lighter and he decided to play with that. And the apartment room caught fire and after that happened, he was in the hospital. His auntie took him in and he lived with her for a while. On his birthday she thought it was time for him to meet his mom again. On that same day she said that he had to move in with his mom again and live with his mom's abusive new husband.
