Summary: Deet used to be normal, but then his dad went to jail and Deet's world changes for better and worse.

Passage from page 229:
"Sometimes when it is raining they called Nelly to come over. He taught them to play poker, which was a lot of fun, and somtimes they played Monopoly. The first time Deet got the card that said, "Go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200," he and Sheena looked at each other, but it didn't hurt like it used to.
They knew jail wasn't funny, and maybe they would always wince when people made a joke of it, but they were a lot tougher than they used to be.
Jail wasn't the end of the world."

Response: This passage is my favorite part. It is because it is meaningful and taught me a lesson, that jail is not the end of the world. You can adapt to anything.

Jmcooke What happens to deet after the game of monopoly?

STPetrovich Answer: During the game of monopoly, Deet's dad is in probation, which means he is out of jail, but the police still check in on him. After the game, Deet realizes that he can live a normal life with his family and friends, but now he won't think of jail as a joke. He will think of it as a serious place that is not the end of the world.
