Overview

Sixth-graders Tommy, Angela, Faye, and the twins, Judge and Jury Jenkins, have been friends forever. Now they’re faced with new problems and need to find new solutions to them—even if it means breaking the law. How can they help prevent an inevitable accident on Tommy’s street, other than by trying to stop cars from speeding past Tommy’s young, deaf neighbor?

Not only must the Posse mastermind a plan, but Tommy must confront his doubts about his mother’s participation in a rally to fight racism. The last thing Tommy wants is to be singled out as a Japanese American, so why does his mother insist on drawing attention to his family?
