A young teen comes of age in an abusive home

Miguel's dad is at it again--physically abusing his mom and sister and terrorizing Miguel for no good reason. But when Miguel's mom and sister, who have been whispering to one another for some time, decide to stand up to the abuse and decide to move to a women's shelter, Miguel's life begins to take turns he never expected. After the family moves out, it isn't long before Miguel's dad promises to change his ways before once again becoming abusive; leaving Miguel to summon the courage to stand up to the man he thought he loved. This emotional and stirring novel is told from the point of view of a young man who is torn between the love he feels for his abusive father and the responsibility to protect his family.
