"In the heat of August, Jake Terri Savage ("JT"), his little sister Danielle, and his bone-headed best friend, Nokey (nicknamed after "gnocchi"), try to steal JT's father{u2019}s beloved 1965 Shelby Cobra. Their reasons are noble; the consequences,devastating. JT's abusive dad's idea of a twelfth birthday gift is getting his son involved in a barroom brawl. Nokey's dad thinks he has potatoes for brains. Both sons live out their fathers' stunted visions in a way that brings down a terrible judgment on them all{u2014}leaving JT hauling rocks for punishment while he staves off panic attacks and nightmares about his sister and her terrible half-known secret. A Dominican teenage girl with little hope for her own future gives JT a second chance to save someone, including himself."--Dust jacket
