conflicts/climax

Marty loves his family and feels bad about lying to them about where he goes and what he is doing with the left over food from his dinner plate. Marty learns from experiences that you can lie not only by what your saying but what you don't say.

favorite part

I really do not have a favorite part of the book. I liked everything I read about it. I just like that it does not matter what happens to Marty. Marty does not try to ever get back at Judd by being mean to him. He is still very confident and I love his cute dog Shiloh too.
