Take a look at this week’s free title, Driving the Demon by Lorca Damon!
“Three things happened on the same day: my grandfather died, my parents split up, and I got suspended from school for five days for being a terrorist.”
Caid Thomas has it pretty rough. ADD medication that doesn’t help him focus, a failing grade in chemistry, and now, an exploding locker, a dead grandfather, and a mom who’s been cheating for some time. When his grandfather’s parting gift is a beat-up Dodge Demon and a weathered copy of Cather in the Rye, Caid realizes a road trip out West was meant to be.
Along the way, though, Caid meets some kids with actual problems. Divorced parents is nothing compared to trying to escape a meth dealer in the projects of Detroit or defending yourself against the man who’s been molesting you for most of your life.
As the trip stops being a nightmare and starts to become a mission, Caid learns a lot about who he thought he was, but more importantly, who he knows he needs to be.
