Trev is struggling and anxious. His step-dad is in jail for hitting his mom, but his release is imminent. And that has Trev stressed. He wants to be able to protect his mom and sisters. He seeks the advice of his uncles, his teacher, his friend P. They try learning to box and getting strong. But Trey thinks about his promise (potential) and the ways in which his choices now will impact his family. A quick read. Short chapters.
