My Brother's Keeper : Toby Malone adores his older brother, Jake. He's the cool one, the MVP of the baseball team, the one who can charm their mother into anything. Even Mrs. Furry, the dignified family cat, puts up with Jake, clowning around. Toby, Jake, and their little brother, Eli have always had an easy, joking relationship, where it's the three of them against the world. But ever since Toby's father left, things are off balance. His mother seems deflated. Eli has gone back to sucking his thumb. And Jake is becoming distant and secretive. As Toby struggles to keep his family together, Jake drifts further and further away. Only Toby knows why: Jake's slipping into drug use, the way their father slipped into alcohol before he disappeared. To spare his mother yet another disappointment, Toby tries to cover up for Jake. But his efforts backfire, only adding to the growing tension between the two brothers - until finally Jake goes too far.
