On the bright side of things he does have his best friend Chloe and his puppy Banjo to rely on.

It's so bad, Sam, Chloe and Banjo have to make a getaway to Sam's grandparents home, to hide from Truman and his Dad, and the Sheriff.

Now that Sam's grandparents are involved, they put Sam and Truman together for the weekend on a project. The two boys are forced to get along and work together to get an old car running again in grandpa's barn. The two boys find that they have a lot in common when it comes to cars. Things really get ramped up when the boys discover the dragster race track and that kids can drive them too. Sam learns that cars were his fathers passion. This secret had been kept from him because his mother did not want him to follow in the dangerous footsteps of his father and the world of drag racing. How will Sam convince his mother to allow him to compete in the junior dragster races?

This story is a quick and fun read with lots of emotional twists and turns. Young readers won't be able to put this page turner down.
