Little Brook Harold is living a horrible existence. By the time he is three, he has already been abandoned by his hero father, suffered terrible abuse at the hands of his mentally ill mother and her boyfriend, and been hungry more days than not. After his father finally manages to rescue him from his terrible situation, Brook lives peacefully for two years, until a judge decides he is better off with his mother, once again sending him on a roller coaster ride through hell. As Brook attempts to readjust to life with his mother and her boyfriend, Willie, he lives in a constant state of fear. He spends his days doing endless chores, trying to prove himself to his mother, and caring for both her and Willie after they drink themselves into oblivion. While Brook matures and deals with endless beatings behind the walls of his abusive home, now only time will tell if he will make it out alive or become their whipping boy forever. Brook Harold is the brutal tale of a boy’s experiences while growing up in an abusive home and enduring beatings at the hands of his mentally ill mother and her boyfriend.
