"I liked the sections about karting the best - action-packed and vivid high-speed racing. This book had many unexpected twists in the story, and with all these elements, it would make a great movie." -Jordan C., NetGalley
"Author Dd Jaseron was not afraid to question the adults' motivations as they tried to impress their own dreams and desires on the young people and how many adults were prepared to ruthlessly use young people just for their own financial gain under the guise of helping or mentoring them. This has long been an issue in not only sports but education and other aspects of teenage life in general. The characters were realistic, the pain genuine, and the angst of growing up and experiencing young love was explored and dealt with extremely well. ... This is a book for parents as well as young people. The issues faced by these three families are universal and ones that we all have to confront at various times in our lives. An excellent first novel from a talented author and one I can highly recommend." -Grant Leishman, Readers'Favorite
"Debut author Jaseron has carefully constructed this complex look at the racing scene and how it affects, and may destroy, lives while tainting the morality of those who manage to ascend to the top echelons. Her writing is strong, with a special gift for dialog." -Barbara Bamberger Scott, A Woman's Write --This text refers to the paperback edition.

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.
Chad Gibbons and Gary Lee Dillanger are best friends from high school who dream of conquering the auto race world. They begin by practicing with a competitive go-karting ride ably managed by the legendary Kilgore racing family situated in Blue Springs, Alabama. Monroe Kilgore.
After graduating from high school, Chad soon realizes that all that glitters is not gold—the world of professional auto racing has its complicated processes. On the other hand, Gary Lee’s dream is put on hold due to some criminal charges against him.
I haven’t read an enigmatic and tear-jacking book like this in a long time. So enchanting.
