Swear to Howdy by Wendelin Van Draanen
Rusty and Joey are best friends. When they are together there is no telling what will happen and what trouble they will get into. Joey is very afraid of his father's temper and mean spirit and will do anything to ensure that his father doesn't find out about the things the boys do. One day, one of their adventures will really test the friendship between these two boys. Joey makes Rusty "swear to howdy" not to tell and this secret makes staying friends very difficult.
