Extracurriculars are scheduled after school, and after school Randi is expected to take care of her special-needs brother. Can Randi find a way to make it all work out?

Editorial Reviews

"Watson's high-low offering is a sensitive look at one sibling's struggle with and sacrifice for her brother...Toby is a well-rounded character...quite satisfying."

— Booklist Online

“Written in a fast-paced style that has the plot constantly progressing due to the action and characters. The straightforward vocabulary makes the book accessible to a wide range of students, but the text is not so simple that it becomes noticeable...any youth could find something to relate to in this book, and the addition of a character with autism creates a unique element to appeal to even more people. A great book for struggling readers. Will appeal to a wide range of readers with varying abilities...a good text to introduce students to the concept of empathy. Recommended.”

— CM Magazine

"Features compelling characters and realistic dialogue."

— VOYA Magazine

"Well-presented and believable on every level."
