Summary

By all outward appearances, Henry's new family is perfect. But appearances can be deceiving, and it isn't long before Henry becomes a servant in his foster home. The couple that vowed to care for him instead chastise him for his "demons". When they're away at church, their children devise new and terrifying ways to torture him. In the darkness of the basement where he sleeps, Henry's disturbing nightmares send him on a frantic search for someone named Charlie. But who is Charlie? And what does he have to do with Henry?Charlie struggles through the monotony of his pathetic life: a hopeless job situation, a less-than-average girlfriend, and a longing for booze that won't subside. After his girlfriend, Sarah, is killed, Charlie's creepy obsession with a former lover and his criminal past make him the prime suspect in Sarah's murder. A hasty decision to skip town brings him face-to-face with pimps, drug pushers and junkies. The bread he stole from the homeless shelter and a glimmer of hope get him through, but it's not long before Charlie comes face-to-face with a little boy that will change his life forever. His dark and twisted reality might be his ticket to innocence, but lands him in a prison that is far worse than he ever imagined…Boy Unraveled is a mirror that shines light on the terrible reality of child abuse and everything that's wrong with the foster care system. A harrowing and gripping psychological thriller, it will force you to lose yourself in the twisted minds of the characters, unravel a web of darkness, and realize that everything you thought you knew was a lie.
