Publisher's Summary

When 16-year-old Travis is sent to stay with his uncle on a ranch in the country, he knows it's his last chance to avoid jail. His abusive stepfather thinks he's a hood. Even his uncle has doubts about Travis - but the truth is that Travis isn't as cold and tough as everyone thinks. He's written a novel and sent it off to a New York publisher. Someday he'd like to write like F. Scott Fitzgerald, but right now he just writes about what he knows - guys just like him, who are always on the edge, ready to explode.
