LJ Has a Heart of Gold!
Marcus is excited when he finds out that his cousin LJ and family are moving to his hometown. LJ is 17 years old and Marcus, who is only 11 years old, really looks up to him. LJ is athletic, fun, and has (as everyone says) a heart of gold. Marcus and his best friend Mia cannot wait to spend time with him. Throughout the book, LJ does in fact devote a lot of time to his little cousin and his best friend, while also showing them what it means to be a nice person and kind to others.
