Cry Silent Tears : The Horrific True Story of the Mute Little Boy in the Cellar : Joe was only five years old when he watched his beloved daddy burn to death in a garage fire. And five years old when he lost his voice. Left at the mercy of his abusive, violent family and unable to ask anyone for help, little Joe's life turned into a living hell. Raped by his mother's boyfriend, beaten and locked in the cellar, he was fed only scraps that he was forced to lick from the floor. To drink water, he first had to gnaw off the glued top of a bottle, a trick played on him by his brothers. But much, much worse was to come . . . This is the heart-warming true story of how an abused little boy overcame impossible odds and grew up into a remarkable man.
