"I am not doing anything wrong. I am just afraid of the punishment" (Gantos 85). Jack does not believe what he did was wrong, but fears the consequences of his crimes. One may be thinking how could one end up in prison for such morbid crime so early in a person 's life? Many instances in his life that could have been a result to this way of thinking. Could it have been the lack of parental supervision, hanging around people with negative influences, doing drugs early in life? The list could go on and on. Informing one about the real reason why he was arrested instead of what influenced his decisions would help the reader better understand the book. Jack Gantos was not incarcerated for the influences of his actions, but for the smuggling of drugs.
