Stumbling Through The Dark
Jared is a fourteen year old boy who is homeless. Previously, he lived in a lovely house with his caring mother and father. After poverty struck their family, they were pushed out into the streets. Can a few years fighting for survival on the streets of the city really change people? I suppose he already found out.
If his life wasn't already horrendous enough, his alcoholic father is forever enraged. No matter what Jared steals, does or says in an attempt to help him, he is only met with violent fury.
His mother has been in a little "business" of her own creation, trying to tie their loose ends. Once life on the streets consumes her, even she changes. So much so, that she decides it's time Jared did more than just the typical drug deal.
