Trouble

Written by Gary Schmidt

Trouble Synopsis

When Henry Smith's older brother goes into a coma after being hit by a Cambodian boy's pickup truck, the entire Smith family is engulfed in the tragedy. It takes a mountain, which Henry vows to climb, to open the eyes of this long-established Yankee family to their own prejudices and to an awareness that they can never insulate themselves against trouble.
