Stealing is bad.
But my brother Levi is always so sick, and his medicine is always so expensive.
I didn’t think anyone would notice,
if I took that credit card,
if, in one stolen second,
I bought Levi’s medicine.
But someone did notice.
Now I have to prove I’m not a delinquent, I’m not a total bonehead.
That one quick second turned into
a year of house arrest,
a year of this court-ordered journal,
a 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.
What could go wrong?

Thanks to Abrams & Chronicle for sending me a copy of this book for a review. However, this doesn't affect my opinion.This one was a bit hard for me to read. But not because it was boring. It was supe...
When I first picked up House Arrest, I thought it was just gonna be another short, cheesy book. But, as I started to read it, I realised I could not stop reading page after page. This book was diffide...
Finished in one sitting. Loved everything about this book- that it was a journal written in verse, the characters, and the bravery of these brothers and their community. I hope my boys care for each o...
It was a little confusing at first but then it was less confusing once you got to the end, also the set up of the book is weird...
