With this exciting new novel Robert Holland adds to a growing list of Young Adult titles that offer those readers who have outgrown his books for younger readers a way to bridge the gap to adult fiction.
Quentin Thunder Arkwright is an outside linebacker and defensive captain on his high school football team. He is six-five, weighs 245 pounds and this is how he describes himself.
"I am not what most people think of as an athlete. All I do is lift weights, run, knock down opposing quarterbacks, and fold up running backs the way you would a pair of pants."
In his free time he and his father restore classic cars and that's just what T (for trouble) finds under an old tarp when he is helping a retired farmer clean out a shed full of junk metal.
It's an old Dodge Power Wagon and the farmer, having no use for a junk truck, agrees to sell it to T and his father for a lot more money than the farmer expected.
The next day, as T watches it towed slowly out of the shed, he gets the sort of surprise no one wants.
For ages 14 and up.
