The Seventh Most Important Thing by Shelley Pearsall

When Arthur T. Owens throws a rock at the strange, neighborhood Junk Man’s arm, he doesn’t anticipate hitting him in the head. Or that the Junk Man himself will save him from juvenile detention. By completing 120 hours of community service collecting what the Junk Man calls “The 7 Most Important Things,” Arthur learns a little about following and finding direction, a lot about himself, and even more about there being more to most people than meets the eye.

Hand to readers in 5th or 6th grade who like tales based in truth (like The Marvels by Brian Selznick) or those who might be looking for a way to achieve redemption themselves.
