Timothy has been put on hose arrest and is required to write in a journal for a year after stealing a wallet. Of course, the reason he stole the wallet was to pay for the medicines his baby brother needs. His brother, Levi, has a damaged trachea and needs a trach. The book is Timothy's journal - the ups and downs, financial stuggles, emotional struggles, his relationship with his dad who walked away, some blooming relationships, the good, bad, and ugly. I felt this was a great read. I didn't like the ending but I can appreciate the ending.
