5th grader, Jerry Johnson is a PK, prisoner's kid, but he keeps it to himself. One kid knows however and threatens to tell the whole school unless Jerry pays him off.
A smoothly plotted,..narrative strengthened by characters, esp. Jerry and his parents who are thoroughly believable and who can stand up to the book's potent theme.
