Jimmy didn't want to . Mike lit the firecracker anyway .

He goes back to Boy Scouts and tries to be friends with Mike , but Leader
bites Mike . Soon Jimmy goes out on a camping trip with the Boy Scout
troop. He dose every thing a normal boy would do . After all Jimmy can
lead a normal life with leader by his side .
The message in this story is that
you can lead a normal life even when
you have a disability .Jimmy
shows this by going on a
camping trip .He also tries to was
the dishes .
My opinion about this book is that it is very sad .
Some of the reasons I think it is sad be cause Jimmy
is blinded . he is also supposed to to go back to school
and be by himself while he was not accepted to the guide dog school.
