Preview Snippet

It was a summer like most any other in Harrison, Tennessee. It was so hot and humid that if you ventured outside, you felt like you were wearing a blanket over your head. To say the conditions were miserable would be putting it mildly.

Most modern-day kids didnít feel the need to brave what Jasonís father called the hillbilly jungle during those hot wretched summer months. Too many ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, and too hot to go outside these days when there are so many indoor distractions to be had under a nice cool air conditioner. Even swimming around here isnít much fun, not with all the pollution in the lakes. One trip into the water will make a kid or adult sick for a week.

But, July 4th was just around the corner, the one time of the summer when kids would venture out to shoot fireworks, and Jason Lewis, aged fourteen, was getting sick and bored with spending his entire life indoors. Besides, his dad was off work this week, and despite loving his father, Jason couldnít relax with his dad around.

Heíd more than likely ask Jason to help him work on one of the cars, which would inevitably lead to Jason getting yelled at, or heíd be sure to put Jason to work doing various chores around the house, at the very least. Either way, Jason would have to suffer the outdoor hell of the hillbilly jungle, so he might as well get out and do something. Jasonís dad was not what youíd call a patient man. He meant well, but when it came to raising a boy, he referred to lessons he had learned from his own dear old dad growing up Ė that boys should be tough. Jason didnít have an issue with that concept, necessarily, but his idea of being tough and his dadís didnít seem to coincide. Apparently, Jason believed that toughness was related to how many wizards, monsters, or zombies you could kill during one sitting of one of his many video games. His dad, however, believed a man should be able to work without sleep or food for hours on end, eat anything to survive, hunt, fish, and most certainly be able to work on anything mechanical. You werenít really working until you drew blood. Jasonís dad would routinely bleed everywhere anytime he stuck in his hand under the hood of a car. You would think cars were put together with razor blades under the hood, but his dad would force his hands into any nook or cranny to reach whatever was necessary, until the job was done, bloody mess or not.
