This book is ANYTHING but Trouble!!! Trouble by Gary Schmidt rates in my book as another Schmidt winner - worthy of that infamous, Newbery - someday he's GOING to get one!!!! This book just makes you think about so much - race, prejudice, families - it's all there and it's VERY good!!! I just don't think you can go wrong with Schmidt and he proves that again. So read it and see if what Henry's father says is true: " If you build your house far enough away from TROUBLE, then Trouble will never find you."
