All Jason ever wanted was to feel loved and cared for. But since his parents died, he has been at the mercy of Bill and Ariana Bynes. Apart from being overworked, abused, and insulted, he is also denied the right to education. As he admires the neighbor's kids going to school, he makes a wish. After taking a lot of blows and beatings, he decides to leave because he doesn't know what will happen next. Fleeing grants him freedom like the birds he loved watching each morning after he woke up. What is in store for Jason after running away and will he get the love and education that he yearns for so much? The Unloved Boy by Sharique Zea will take you through a journey full of pity, courage, and hope that will twist your emotions with every page you read.
What I liked most about Sharique Zea's The Unloved Boy was how suspenseful and full of twists it was. This was especially true when Jason, my favorite character, was in a tough situation with no way out or when danger was coming from somewhere he couldn't see. My heart kept beating faster as I hoped everything would be okay. Jason's character is well-developed, and I could not help but love and admire him. His bond with his loved ones is priceless, and he is willing to sacrifice his own life to protect them. This is something that very few people can do, and I found it admirable. Mark's and Jason's stories were a cry for help to stop the abuse and mistreatment, especially from parents tasked with looking after children who are not their own.
