Under the Same Sky
Audience: 7th Grade - 8th Grade
Joe is turning fourteen, and he is determined to get the best birthday present ever: a thousand-dollar black and chrome motorbike just like the one his friend is getting. Then, he will finally have his summer to himself, able to go where he pleases. When he asks, his dad flat out refuses, saying Joe doesn't know the value of money. His father says that he can have the bike if he earns the money himself, working on his dad's farm with the laborers. He's determined to prove to his father that he knows what hard work is. As the summer continues, though, Joe finds out there's a lot more going on at the farm than he knew, and some of the people he works with may be in trouble.
