White dogs turn red, carpet is ruined, a briefcase is never going to be the same, and an eye looks like it ran into a big ink pad. 

JJ is a young boy who faces some tough decisions. 

What do you do if a stranger comes to your door?

Do you obey your parents when they ask you to do something that doesn't seem important?

Is it OK to give out information that could allow someone to get into your home?

Do you have certain opinions about people because they may not be like you?

JJ's parents have rules to teach him safety and help him avoid getting hurt, but he chooses to disobey. JJ learns a valuable lesson the hard way and realizes in the end never to underestimate anyone.

Caught in a Cycle by Amy B. Crowe

What happens when a good kid gets harassed by a bully and caught in a cycle of lies trying to protect himself? After-school fights, bullying at the ballpark, a visit to the nurse, and clean up duty at the zoo! Caught in a Cycle shows how even one lie can spiral into a dangerous path of more until it gets out of control. JJ struggles to make good choices while trying to protect his friends from a bully.

  • Is it ok to tell a little lie to avoid another problem?
  • Is it ok to cover one lie with more lies to avoid a bully?
  • What do you do if a bully harasses you or your friend?
  • What about those who can't defend themselves?

JJ knows right from wrong, but sometimes it's tough when you face difficult choices. JJ learns valuable lessons as he defends the defenseless and tackles truth head-on.
