This story is written from the prospective of Eddie, a twelve year old boy who is at the threshold of his teen years and believes that even after the sudden death of his father, his life would be so much better if he finds the bike of his dreams under the Christmas tree. Instead, he finds a sweater, lovingly hand-knitted by his mother. When Eddie fails to understand the vast treasure he has in his family, the breakdown in their relationship begins. After his mother's tragic death, Eddie's sullen and spiteful attitude is like a brick wall that keeps those who love him unconditionally away. His road to maturity is difficult for everyone involved and made more painful by his choice to blame God and those around him for his lack of material things.
