Summary
Young Carolyn walks an emotional tightrope knowing what really happened to her best friend, Jimmy, the day his Uncle Ted chose to teach him a lesson that left Jimmy brain-damaged. But when Uncle Ted threatens his beleaguered family with even more abuse and the loss of their home, Carolyn must find the courage to match wits with him and to speak out, using the truth as her only weapon
Summary
Carolyn knows the truth about what happened to Jimmy. Jimmy didn't fall from a swing like Uncle Ted claims--it was Uncle Ted who decided to teach Jimmy a "lesson". Now, Carolyn tries to take care of poor, brain-damaged Jimmy--and to protect him from Uncle Ted. When Uncle Ted threatens his family with even more abuse and the loss of their home, Carolyn takes it upon herself to fight back.
