I am a sucker for "Brian in Peril" stories and this is one of the best I've read. The author does a great job dissecting Brian's complex mind. Phenomenal writing, interesting premise, and a satisfying ending. Can't ask for much more! -charming1
After Justin leaves for New York, the remaining members of the Liberty Avenue family go about their everyday lives, never suspecting that something serious is happening to Brian. When the realization hits, they find that everyone's lives are irrevocably altered.

I won't lie to you, friends. This may be a difficult one to read. Very angsty and painful. Hopefully, though, the ending will make you PROUD.
WARNING: For much of the story from this point on there will be painful presentations of child abuse, both physical and emotional. I know from experience that this can be particularly difficult for those who have struggled with the effects of childhood abuse, so I am posting this one-time TRIGGER alert.
**This chapter will show the private thoughts of someone who is sexually attracted to a child, without being graphic.
Several chapters are being added at once here. Just so you don't miss any...
Major tissue warning!!!
This is probably my favorite chapter, and one of the most heartbreaking, of this story.
