Eight year old Krame offers insight as to what it feels like to endure physical abuse and emotional abandonment.  Both parents are alcoholics and his mother his mentally ill.  Follow him as he loses his innocence and childhood.  To the members of his gang he is known as the “Thinker,” as he plans each escapade to the finest detail.  They think it is because he watches out for them.  In reality, he does not want to get caught and suffer another beating.  All goes well until tragedy strikes.

Feel his hunger from not being allowed to eat.  Experience his fear being locked in darkness with only the crawling insects to keep him company.  You too will wonder what his father meant when he said, I like doing this to you because you are not mine.”

The skin ripping beatings continue until he is seventeen years of age.  Learn if Krame keeps his promise made to himself at age eight.  Wonder at the family secret that Krame discovers years later.  Peer into the dynamics of alcoholism and child abuse and see if people can change.
