You might know Gerald from his appearance on that one reality show, the one with the nanny. Gerald was the kid who took a dump on his family’s kitchen table during dinner. Now a teenager, Gerald is attempting to manage the unwanted fame from being a child reality star and the anger he feels towards his less-than-perfect family.
Reality Boy’s tone is dark and explores themes of abuse and neglect. Gerald’s inner monologue is both caustic and funny. Anyone who has ever attempted to run away from their problems, either physically or emotionally (by retreating behind a wall of anger and emotional numbness), will relate to Gerald’s struggles. This story is about reconciling the past and deciding what type of person you want to be in the future.
