Last year, Joey was the best science student in Miss Alder's fourth-grade class. But last year, he didn't have to deal with a teacher who didn't like him, a class bully, or a new stepfather. Mr. johnson seems to be a good man, and Joey's mother loves him, but Joey just wants his real family back. Then Mr. Johnson brings home the pickup truck he hopes will launch his contracting business. He wants Joey to help, but Joey isn't sure he's ready to take the chance.

"While celebrating ths importance of honesty, integrity, and supportive damily relationships, Boyd also tries to reise consciousness on family issues."--Kirkus Reviews

About the Author:

Candy Dawson Boyd (born August 8, 1946) is an American writer, activist and educator, and is the author of a number of books for young readers. Boyd writes children's books that are "inspiring, positive, and realistic." Themes in her work include love, friendship, death, rejection, personal responsibility, taking care of others and coping with failure. Many of her books focus around African American youth and aim to fight African-American stereotypes. Her books also pull influence from her experience in the Civil Rights movement. Her first book, A Circle of Gold, was awarded a Coretta Scott King Award.

From Publishers Weekly:

In describing how Joey adapts to a new stepfather, Boyd "tackles several important issues," according to PW. Ages 8-12.
