Kevin likes to stretch the truth, and most of the time, it’s been fine. Lies help smooth over uncomfortable moments…dinner was wonderful, school was fine, etc, etc. When he stretches the truth too far, though, Kevin finds out that lying can come back to haunt you.
In one eventful week, Kevin manages to lie to his parents, his siblings, his aunt, his friends, and his teachers. When he does finally tell someone the truth, it’s to tell the little boy he babysits what “divorce” means. Not a happy topic, but amazingly, the little boy thanks him for being honest – no one else has been. It makes Kevin think about turning over a new leaf. Can he undo all the lies of the past week?
