The Insane Life in Montanan Montana
(The Prequel Sequel)
What does one do when ones family is on the other side of the law? Well that is up for that one to decide I’m not the one to judge, but in this case we’ll choose law. Obviously we’re talking ‘bout a book from nearby Montanan Montana! (Montana 1948 By Larry Watson) This book is through the point of view of David Hayden, not obnoxious, but still a 12 year old boy who lives in Mercer County and sees what the real world is like. (IT’S A TRAP) I’ll be aiming on the two brothers, Frank n’ Wesley, who struggle with the one thought “who do I side with?!” (Frank: Join the dark side Wes). Why should Family NOT come first? (Wes: I will never join you!)
At the moment I’m aiming at Frank’s face and

When he is conflicted between his family and his job; to keep people safe. He chooses the law and arrests his brother Frank; reason is because, he raped other girls and killed Marie Little Soldier (David’s babysitter) Wesley takes Frank to jail but Frank refuses and is instead held in Wesley’s basement. While this happens Wesley plans to take him to take him to court to trial to jail time (and stuff)!
On the Blankth of blank 1948 (Give me a break, it only says 1948 but I’m not giving up on this paragraph intro… anyways!) Frank Hayden died in the tragic battle in the basement with a jar (He slit his wrist), after having died the Hayden family wasn’t too sure of anything. You see, most people would be ashamed or even afraid that someone would find out about what he did and while being the pride of Bentrock that only adds more pressure, but Frank was not the most people. Obviously he died to escape the “embarrassment” of his crimes (Ah… we all know what it is)
So while sometimes family might be a bit overrated, they sometimes don’t have your back, Jerry as a parent didn’t help Wesley, but instead tried to bail out Frank (out of a basement). Sure they might make you feel good (complements), or have a good time; then there are those times when you have no one to rely on.
