Featured Book of the Week:  

House Arrest by K.A. Holt is a story told in verse.  Timothy made a mistake and stole a wallet at a gas station.  He did it for a good reason – to get money to buy medicine for his baby brother who is very sick.  However, it was still wrong to steal and his punishment is one year of house arrest.  Read this book to find out how this goes and what Timothy does to continue to try to help his brother get the treatment he needs.
