House ArrestBook - 2015
From Library Staff
Twelve-year-old Timothy is under house arrest for stealing a wallet. However, Timothy only wanted the money for his sick baby brother, Levi. Because of the crime, Timothy must endure house arrest for the next year. Through sentimental and creative free verse, Timothy's emotional journey unfolds.
All of the things Timothy must do on house arrest should be enough to keep him out of trouble, but it's not that easy when he and his family are struggling to make ends meet--and keep his brother alive.

So, those "frustratingly mixed messages" mentioned in the Kirkus review for House Arrest? I loved them. This book does an excellent job of showing how incredibly unfair life can be, and how doing the wrong thing for the right reasons can make a lot of sense. Highly recommend!
