His biggest challenge however is Little P, his second cousin who grandma brings to stay with them when she returns. Little P is a seventh grader and a bully. Along with Antoine, they rough up Alec at home, making things even harder for him.

When he goes to church on Easter Sunday, Alec hears a message that helps him look at his life a bit differently. He learns that the right way to deal with all that is going on in his life is to let his parents handle their situation, pray and trust God to him show him how and help him be his best.
