A young boy, his mother and sister are abandoned in a dilapidated house while his brutal father makes a career out of prostituting women. In order to help his mentally disturbed mother and abused sister escape the impoverished conditions under which they live, the boy undertakes extraordinary measures to better himself. He transforms his frail body into a form more suited for the cruel and violent world that was first introduced to him by his father. He also sets out to overcome the learning disability that stands between him and the college education he needs to help his family. It is not, however, until after the unrelated murders of the boys brother and best friend that the story takes its darkest turn. qFutile Effortsq provides a compelling story of psychological intrigue as it depicts the evolution of a scared, frail boy into something that is more frightening than his worst nightmare. What sets qFutile Effortsq apart from its genre is not the terible misfortunes described in the story but the responses to those misfortunes. qFutile Effortsq is made even more compelling by the fact that it is based entirely on a true story.Repeatedly, I raise and lower my head as the stream of warm water flows down my face and onto my body. After about thirty ... I stare transfixed. ... As I dry off, I step out of the tub and walk toward the mirror just above the sink in the bathroom. ... As I look into the mirror I do not ease up on the pressure I put on my right hand.
