After his mother and sister move out, thirteen-year-old Casey begins to realize that his father's drinking problem is more than he can handle and that the intervention his aunt suggests may be the best way to help.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: An ALA Best Book for Young Adults

Ever since his mother and sister moved away, thirteen-year-old Casey has had to cook, clean, and look after his father when he's "sick." Every night Casey wonders how things will be when his dad gets home. When things are bad, Casey can't help blaming himself. Casey believes his dad is just going through a hard time, that he'll get better soon. Then comes a phone call from his aunt. She knows what's going on and wants to help, and there's something they can do - if Casey will participate.

Available only in The Literacy Bridge 5.
