Some items in this activity are based on the story

The Big River Mix-Up

What will happen to Justin in the future? If the police wake up, they'll catch him and throw him into jail. In jail, he won't have much to do, but he might want to work out in the prison gym. He might also want to write his memoirs up. Lots of people would like to read the story of his life!

Get the whole story!

Justin may be making money next year -- or sitting in jail.
