The Runaway Pastor’s Wife
Brian Boozer’s life has gone to hell since his father died. His mother’s new lazy husband is much more than merely abusive, and the two are left alone while Brian’s mother works double-shifts everyday to provide for them, making money that her husband spends on booze instead of food.
At school, Brian faces four bullies daily that make his life even more miserable. His health has declined, as have his grades. He’s now failing nearly all of his classes. He can’t concentrate on his schoolwork because he lives in fear of his step-father at home, and of the bullies at school.
The only bright spot in his life is Carly, the girl on which he’s had a crush for years. As his relationship… More >>
