Tony gets a summer babysitting job, but it turns out to be more then he bargined for. Not only is Duncan more of a handful then he expected. But there is a car that keeps coming at night, and little things go missing. Tony learns what it means to really care for Duncan, and what it takes to be a man when both of their lives are in danger.

Picked this up somewhere to pre read for the children. Okay story. Not as funny as I expected, but slightly humorous. Only a couple of words I decided to black out.

One of the books I've read several times (because it's one of the few kids/teen books at my grandma's house).
I suppose there is a bit of nostalgia about it or something, and that's why I give it 5 stars.
