And there were still two weeks left before summer vacation. So what does Bobby do? He fakes measles, gets out of the last two weeks. That’s what. His grades were plenty high — up to now, the highest in his class. It will cost him little academically. So, why not, he had reasoned. Anything to avoid Matt. It worked. Summer came and school let out. With Matt put safely in his rear-view mirror, Bobby was free. Free, that is, until, on his way to summer camp, his life takes an unexpected dangerous and frightening turn? Bobby hadn’t wanted to go to that stupid church camp, the one that his dad had picked out for him. But it would have been infinitely better, safer, and a whole lot less dangerous than what had become the alternative: a quest for survival across a hostile desert, through third world slums, with terrorists, narco-traffickers and federal police in pursuit. His only friend, a teenage hit man on the run from the infamous Tijuana Cartel. The ordeal, deadly as it is, begins to change Bobby Fine. Mold him from the mostly defenseless person that he was. Shape him in a way that should he survive, should Matt ever again accost him, the usual outcome will be much different — if, that is, if Bobby Fine survives.
