Associated by the town with his father's coarseness, hectored by the boorish football coach and the coach's pack of steroid-pumping teens, feeling himself losing ground, Andy is stunned to discover that the most popular girl in town is attracted to him. Terri, the homecoming queen, the school beauty, every boy's dream girl, a born-again Christian, a really nice girl. Andy can't believe it. He is immediately head over heels in love first love and determined to protect Terri from everything bad on earth. Worried that his father, even he himself, might contaminate her, and determined for her sake to discover what his father is, Andy begins to delve into the locked rooms and dangerous currents of the elder Tietam Brown's past and present.
What happens is told in an audiobook that is appealingly direct, moving, and altogether pleasurable in its superb storytelling and celebration of the human spirit.

a must hear
When i picked this one out i had no idea it was written by a pro wrestler, which makes it that much better! The story is hauntingly uplifting in a sick perverted way, Chuck Palahniuk, and Johnathan Frazer fans will enjoy this book, i am looking froward to his next novel

Yes, this is a worthwhile audiobook
A dark yet mesmerizing coming-of-age story. I really wasn't expecting much from this author knowing that he's a pro wrestler but I could not stop listening to this audiobook. It's not classic literature but it is an interesting, well-paced, complex novel.
