The Harper’s took Rex in and raised him like he was one of their own even though they had 3 children already. Their son Jeremy and Rex were best friends, and then there was Hettie and Arlene. As the years went by Rex and Arlene began to have feelings for each other and what starts out as just a little hugging and kissing soon turns into much more. When Arlene gets worried she might be pregnant Rex starts to worry what the Harper’s are going to say about their relationship and if they will send him away. Rex wonders if he can stand to lose another family.
Mrs. Boruk did a remarkable job writing this story all from Rex’s point of view. I really enjoyed reading this emotional story and look forward to reading more of LaVonne Boruk’s books.
