    Right Behind You by Gail Giles

    At the age of nine, Kip McFarland is a troubled child. Living with his dad in the Alaskan wilderness after his mother's death, Kip is lonely and jealous of other kids' easy lives. So jealous, in fact, that when his seven-year-old neighbor stops by to show off a brand-new baseball glove, he sets the glove --- and the boy --- on fire.

    Institutionalized for the next several years, Kip gains a reputation at the juvenile treatment facility, not only for killing another kid but also for being angry enough to snap at a moment's notice. With the help of a patient, wise therapist and the consistent love of his father, though, Kip does eventually get better and is released.

    i attempted asking Mister Ed, yet he did no longer comprehend what you have been speaking approximately. I hailed vehicle fifty 4, yet the two flat foot patrolmen stated i became nuts. Then I asked the Addams kinfolk, however the look they gave me scared the heck out of me.. Sorry, yet no help here....
