The Watsons are living in Fint and it is very cold.
Since it was cold they were planning to go to Grandma Sands and it was in Birmingham. Also, Granda Sands is strict so Byron was going to learn how to be a good kid. There were racism and unfairness in Birmingham.
They arrived in Birmingham and the next day they went to check out the lake but they told the kids not to go to a specific lake because there was a whirlpool, which was Winnie the Poo's evil twin brother. The whirlpool was int he lake and taking children in, and Kenny was checking out the lake and went in there. But then Byron came in time and saved him.
They can back home and on Sunday Joetta was getting ready for Sunday school. But when Joetta arrived at Sunday school there was a bomb and it exploded.
But luckily Joetta didn't get hurt because she saw a kid that was waving at her who looked like Kenny. Right before the bomb exploded Joetta followed a kid who look like Kenny, so Joetta was safe.
Kenny was ashamed of himself thinking that it was because of him going in the lake where the whirl pool was and trying to hurt Joetta. Kenny was behind the couch and was expecting magic to happen because Byron told him that when he was little. Byron brought Kenny to the restroom and had a talk about being ashamed when he shouldn't be.
