About this ebook

Wheelboys is the emotional, action-packed debut novel from Dd Jaseron, and winner of both the 2020 Readers' Favorite medal for Fiction - Social Issues and the 2020 eLit Book Award for Popular Fiction. Tragedy, love, and unintended consequences change everything for three families one summer in Blue Springs, Alabama.

Chad Gibbons and his best friend, Gary Lee Dillanger, have worked their way through the ranks of competitive go-karting with the legendary Kilgore racing family. Monroe Kilgore and his wife Uma see their racing world very differently, and Uma is haunted by it. Chad is pursuing the opportunity of his lifetime to become a professional auto racer, but the fast and luxurious world of racing is not as it appears. Tragedy strikes, and Chad is left to find his own way. Elle Dillanger struggles with criminal charges against her son, Gary Lee, and the truth about his tragic accident unfolds as the detectives investigate.

"A deftly crafted and thoroughly entertaining novel that reveals the dark side of competitive sports in general, and auto racing in particular, Wheelboys is especially and unreservedly recommended." -Midwest Book Review
