In this children's book, Timmy sets out to get a new pair of inline skates so he can be fast like his friends and maybe skate even faster than them. When Mom tells Timmy he cannot get the skates right now, Timmy is angry! He and his dog, Jonah, rush out of the house. Timmy notices Mr. Miller from the hockey games across the street. He is putting a for sale sign in the front yard of the Johnson's’ house. It has been emptied for a long time.
Timmy tells Mr. Miller how warm and inviting the Johnson's house was the last time he was in it. He remembers all the toys their little daughter Elizabeth had in her toy room. Mr. Miller informs Timmy that all of that has changed. The Johnson's had some problems and no longer live in the house. The house is falling apart.
Timmy not only notices things about the Johnson's house that he had not seen before but he also notices things about his neighborhood and his own house. Walking through the cold house with Mr. Miller makes Timmy realize just how lucky he is.
Timmy wants new inline skates!!!!
