    Brothers with Problems

    Miracle's Boys By Jaqueline Woodson Lafayette is the youngest of the three. He cares About Newcharlie and wants him back the way he was that¿s why they call him NEWcharlie.Newcharlie is the middle brother and went to a place called Rahway and now he does not care about anybody but himself and hates Lafayette. Ty¿ree is the oldest and takes care of the two younger brothers because their mom and dad are dead he does not get a lot of money to support his family. So their mom and dad are dead Ty¿ree has to support his brothers and they do not have much money. Newcharlie does not listen to Ty¿ree and does whatever he wants to do. Newcharlie always picks on Lafayette and says he killed their mom. It¿s pretty much a story about a family with many problems. The story takes place in the brothers¿ house and around their neighborhood. The time is probably in the recent past. The theme of the story has to do with families and the problems families have and how they solve the problems. I liked the story because it shows how some families really are today. I related to the story because it is about brothers and I have two brothers. The brothers in the story sometimes acted like my brothers and me.

    Miracle's Boys

    Imagine loosing both of your parents. How would you feel? Well this is what this story is about. The book Miracle Boys, by Jacqueline Woodson, is about three brothers named Lafayette, Tyree, and Charlie Bailey, who have lost both of their parents. They are trying to deal with it the fact that they are gone, but it¿s hard when their brother Lafayette keeps asking questions about what happened. Now their brother Charlie just got back from Rahway¿s home for boys and he¿s changed in so many ways that Lafayette doesn¿t think that he¿s his brother anymore. I would recommend this teen drama to anyone who has problems dealing with the lost of a family member or friend, this might help you over come your problem.
