Review: In this follow-up to Jumping Off Swings, 17-year-old Josh moves away from his hometown and in with his uncle - he's running away from his responsibilities after a one-night stand resulted in an unexpected pregnancy. Josh is tormented by his guilt and his Jackie Chan-obsessed uncle welcomes his troubled nephew with open arms. As his friendship with his uncle grows, Josh is forced to face his responsibilities and his journey from self-hatred to self-forgiveness shows that you can accept that you're a good person who made a bad choice.
