Publisher's Summary

Timothy is on probation. It's a strange word - something that happens to other kids, to delinquents, not to kids like him. And yet, he is under house arrest for the next year. He must check in weekly with a probation officer and a therapist and keep a journal for an entire year. And mostly, he has to stay out of trouble. 

But when he must take drastic measures to help his struggling family, staying out of trouble proves more difficult than Timothy ever thought it would be. 

By turns touching and funny, and always original, House Arrest is a middle-grade novel in verse about one boy's path to redemption as he navigates life with a sick brother, a grieving mother, and one tough probation officer.

Wonderful, Outstanding, Phenomenal

The title of this story is very great for this book in particular. I think K.A. Holt is an wonderful author and this is definitely up his alley. The story line continuously reminds you that the main character is on house arrest.

PERFORMANCE
In my opinion the performance could have possibly been better especially since it a book that is read to you because if not you will probably end up taking a nap and then waking up to the loud voice of the narrator.

STORY
The story is amazing and will really make you think your own life and what you're grateful for.
