Publisher's Summary

He watched as she screamed and yelled with every strike that the man made to her face. From her mouth, she spit blood that was rolling down her face. He continued to watch the man repeatedly hit and kick the woman in the stomach, again and again."Noooo stop! Please stop!" as she yelled his closed fist went upside her head. Michael knew he had to do something to stop the man from beating the beautiful woman, with tears running down his own face he yelled, "Daddy stop! Daddy stop!" as he ran his six year old frame between his father and mother. "Daddy stop hitting mommy!" All he felt was his father's big black hands grasp him around his neck and squeeze until he couldn't breathe. Then he threw him across the room. Michael sat on the floor crying. Partly because of the pain he felt, but mostly because of the beating his mother was getting. How does Michael, child of a crack head, fight to stay alive? What will he face and those he truly love? And do they survive the terror of the man they call Black Ice. This book tells the story of countless beatings, killings, lies, infidelity and betrayals of a crack head and how a mother and child survive the street life.

A child of a crack head

Good narrator but stupid story. It was accidentally purchased. Decided to keep and listen during travel time. A waste of time.

A Child of a Crack Head

I loved it!! Full of emotion, abuse, depth, horror, and most of all the unbreakable spirit and bond between a mother and son.

Sad....

This book was so sad to me. Poor Rachel & Michael went through hell! The narrator was awesome, and I truly enjoyed the story overall. I would recommend this book.

monster

This was the worst story I have ever listened to. Black Ice would not die, he just lived and lived and lived.
I will not be listening to the series.
