Cracker Jackson, a ten-year-old boy, receives a letter from his ex-babysitter, Alma. It is a warning because Alma thinks that her husband, Billy Ray, might harm Cracker. Since Cracker believes that Billy Ray is abusing Alma and her baby, Cracker does not need Alma's advice. In fact, Cracker encourages Alma to leave her husband and tries to make certain that Alma and her baby are safe.

Through sorrow, suspense, and humor, this book makes readers understand that children will risk everything in order to help someone they really care about
