Hers is a drunken bum who drove her mother away to Chicago and now beats her instead of her mother. We soon realized it was above his reading level, so I read the book to my 4th grade son and 2nd grade daughter. It doesn’t help that for the first half of the book it’s all about Derek Badger, and then he literally disappears and we forget all about him until he once again literally jumps back onto the page.
