The only person who cares about me is Mom. Now that she's gone I'm stuck ^at home with my angry dad and my annoying brother. Antoine thinks he's all that ^and won't get off my case. And now that Dad is the assistant principal at school, ^everything is a mess!


That kid Tyrod is out to get me in trouble. Antoine ^is all mad because the football coach likes my moves better than his. And Grandma ^has completely taken over our house. At least Morgan and my boy Trey are in my class. ^But things are getting weird with Morgan and I'm not sure why.


Even with all ^the trouble, I'm starting to see that Dad really does have my back. He's trying ^to do things God's way. Like teaching me what it means to be a team player - at ^home, at school, and on the football field. He might even get Mom to come home. ^Like I told my friend Morgan, I think it's all going to work out because we are ^on God's team.
