Jason's mom says he is a problem, and puts him in a group home. Now Jason has to live with boys and grown-ups he doesn't know.

Jason thinks, Now I'm in a house that isn't my house. I watch their hands and feet. When hands and feet move fast, you're going to get hit.

There's a big bubble of mad inside Jason. It makes him yell and throw things. Jason wants to be good and move home again, but the mad bubble just won't go away.

Perfect for children and adults alike. A great read aloud that places you in the shoes of Jason who can't control his anger. When he lands in a group home he finally gets some help.

This book is very interesting, especially at the part where Jason moves into the group home and doesn't want to stay. I particularly liked this book because it shows Jason's view of everything, like when Jason woke up in the morning, feeling confused and then realizing that he was in the group home, not in the old house he used to have, with his sister Linda and his mom. I recommend this book to whoever enjoys emotional but peaceful stories.
