Brick’s dad has a temper; you never know when he’s going to blow. His mom’s self-absorbed and leaves the care of his little sister to Brick. It’s no wonder Brick has to let off a little steam of his own once in a while. This summer Brick’s going to take up Mr. Larkin’s offer of work, even though he’s been forbidden to “fraternize with the neighbours.” He’s going to earn enough money to escape — on the day of his sixteenth birthday. But … who will his dad turn to when he doesn’t have a son to kick around anymore? Home Truths is a revealing portrait of a bully-in-the-making and his journey to redemption.
