This book was about a boy who had a sister who was little slow and had to take care of her in the afternoons after school. One day in class his teacher ask the class to write a paragraph about a wish. He had been keeping his wishes in glass bottles to bring out to sea on his birthday. He did not want to write his wish down because it would not come true. During all of this he is about to turn ten years old, and in the projects where he lived at ten you are suppose to join a gang, and he does not want to. His mother gets a better job offer and they move out of the project. This was a good book to read to third through fifth grade levels when you maybe talking about urban affairs ( )

Reeve McLain, Jr.--Junebug--has a big dream that keeps him going. He dreams that someday he and his younger sister and mother will move from the awful housing project where drugs, gangs, and guns are part of everyday life. Junebug's tenth birthday is coming up, and he knows the gangs and drug dealers will be after him to join them. But he has a big birthday plan to keep his hope alive. He's going to launch his glass-bottle collection filled with notes of his dreams and wishes. Maybe some way, somehow, Junebug's dream will come true.
