Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Visiting Cutter’s grave is the only time Tate Brooks feels peace. At home, his younger brother, Indy, and his father are at war. Under the Bridge with his skating crew, Hole in the Wall, he’s fighting for territory. At school, he struggles not only with grades, but girls, particularly Kimberly Lawsen. While Tate tries to hold his life together after Cutter’s overdose, his brother Indy’s life is breaking apart. He’s dropped out of school, and started dealing drugs in the concrete jungles of Spokane. Tate can’t lose someone else close to him, especially his brother. When a pro-skating tour comes through town, Tate hopes it will be the key to bringing them all back together, not tearing them apart.
