Wheelboys (English Edition) Format Kindle
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.
More than a coming-of-age story, this book challenges society’s complacency with the exploitation of youth and questions adult and corporate responsibilities. The journeys faced by these three families are universal and resonate for any reader: overcoming grief, finding one’s path, and discovering love.

À propos de l'auteur

I greatly enjoyed that the book started right in the middle of things. The background that you need as everything moves forward is delivered in an excellent narrative without weighing down the book at all. I took this one down on a weekend afternoon, it’s not necessarily a short read, but it’s something that I had a really hard time putting down. Everything here is so relationship-driven that I was happy to pick up the tidbits of knowledge that I didn’t go into the story knowing already.
There were a few parts that were a little cheesy, but it definitely didn’t take away from the moment. If you’re looking for a good and quick read with excellent characters, then give this book a try.
Additionally, the Kilgores, the legendary racing family, also have secrets of their own. The need for speed, fame, and fortune haunts the wife. Her husband becomes obsessed with his need for more...speed, fame, and money. But at what cost?
This is a poignant look at the need for speed and the consequences that go along with it. There’s depth, humor, love, and tragedy all rolled into one. I eagerly sped through the pages to reach the end, and I was glad I did. It’s a worthwhile read that’s great for just about everyone.
Full of fun, tragedy, and even a little bit of romance -anyone can enjoy this non-conventional drama. This is not something for someone looking to read about an action-packed story full of sports. Rather, it is meant for someone who is more interested in a look behind the scenes and the emotions that come with it.
