    Sonny s father leaves his family when Sonny is a young boy Sonny was too young at the time to truly understand the weight of the situation Sonny s mother receives help from a seemingly coincidental Uncle Marty from One Way church to raise her three kids Loretta, Sonny, and Deaton Despite the criticism from their extended family, Uncle Marty stays and acts as a father figure in Sonny s life Sonny, desperate to find answers of his father s absence, goes to Mobile to look for the truth coming Sonny s father leaves his family when Sonny is a young boy Sonny was too young at the time to truly understand the weight of the situation Sonny s mother receives help from a seemingly coincidental Uncle Marty from One Way church to raise her three kids Loretta, Sonny, and Deaton Despite the criticism from their extended family, Uncle Marty stays and acts as a father figure in Sonny s life Sonny, desperate to find answers of his father s absence, goes to Mobile to look for the truth coming back unlucky, Sonny ends up going to Uncle Marty after he s returned to Mozier and thought through the trip s events Sonny comes to find out that Uncle Marty knowsabout Sonny s dad than Sonny, or anyone, realizes The truth isdisturbing than Sonny would like it to be.The book Do You Know the Monkey Man by Dori Hillestad Butler revolves around the theme and idea that there sto a family s story than what everyone might say in Sonny s House of Spies, Sonny learns the truth about his father behind the stories he s told Sonny and Sam, Sam is from Do You Know the Monkey Man, are the same in the matter that they are both given a simple story of what happened to their father s and why they left Sonny and Sam both do a little investigating and go to where their fathers are allegedly When Sonny asks about his father s absence, he gets a terse reply when Sam asks about her twin sister and father, she gets a terse reply also These two books are the same on the idea that some stories about people have a deeper truth than anyone realized

    Set in 1950s ish Alabama with a bit about racial and homosexual issues, but mostly just the story of a teenage boy Very little actually happens.
