A companion novel to Priscilla Cumming's highly acclaimed"The Red Kayak"and"The Journey Back"
Thirteen-year-old Kate Tyler must ask herself how far she will go to protect her older brother, J.T., when he returns home after nearly a year in a juvenile detention facility, only to find himself ostracized and bullied as he attempts to make a fresh start. Kate compromises her own values and risks getting herself into serious trouble as she launches a secret campaign to protect her brother long enough for him to find his place in the family and in the world again.
As a follow-up to "Red Kayak, Cheating for the Chicken Man "brings J.T., Kate, and Brady Parks together again as they struggle with the complicated issues of fairness, friendship, and forgiveness."
