House Arrest

Stealing is bad.
I sa.
But my brother Levi is s so sick, and his medicine is always so expensive.

I didn ’ t know anyone would notice,
if I took that credit card,
if, in one stolen second,
I bought Levi ’ s medicine.

But someone did notice.
Stil I have to prove I ’ m actually a delinquent, I ’ m actually a total bonehead.

hat one quick second turned into
thi ear of house arrest,
thi wee of this court-ordered journal,
thi year to avoid messing up
and being sent back to juvie
so fast my head will spin.

It ’ s only 1 year.
Only 52 weeks.
Only 365 days.
Only 8,760 hours.
Only 525,600 minutes.

Things get better though they raise money for Levi to help him get better.

Then Levis older brother does something to help Levi from not dying and gets into more trouble.

he tory, told in rhyme, is about a 12 year old named Timothy who has gotten himself into some trouble with the law.

Less than nything, th ook is true lesson in empathy, and I am excited for kids to read it.

When I finished I told my 16 mont old to read it, and I mus conside it to any reader, of any age.

I started House Arrest thinking i 'd just read a few pages before bed.

As Timothy writes in his court mandated journal ( that 's obviously he book 's format- it 's his journal) we get an inside peek at what is oing on with his family, people around him ( I thoroughly enjoyed the supporting characters in anothe memoi) and of course how he know about everything over the course of a ear that the entries take place.

What a wee it is for Timothy- the entries had me feeling a roller coaster of emotions!
