Claude Avery

TJ's younger brother does not say much but is also a friend to the Logans. He is more afraid of TJ than of their mother and generally does what his brother tells him to do. He is beaten by the mob when they come for his brother.

Mr. Avery

TJ and Claude's father is a sharecropper on Harlan Granger's land. He participates in the boycott of the Wallace store but backs out when Granger threatens to kick him off the land. He is small and sickly and can't control TJ. He too is treated violently when the mob comes for his son.

Mrs. Avery

TJ and Claude's mother has little control over her sons. When she tries to protect her son from the mob, she is thrown back against her house.

T.J gets the Logan kids and Mama in trouble. He is impulsive and reckless with their friendship.
