In her new book, Wheelboys, Dd Jaseron tells of an eventful summer for three families in Alabama. The story circles around an elite kart racing team and its impact on the main characters. Told from varying perspectives, the reader learns of Chad’s and Gary Lee’s dreams of breaking into professional auto racing and of the Kilgore family’s long history in racing.
“High school students need to read, and this book has a message for young adults,” says Dd Jaseron. “Between the ages of 18 and 21, young people are very vulnerable. Every student should read this book.”
