Review:
Fourteen year-old Peewee, with her brother Jake, run a struggling garage out “in the weeds” in Indiana. The two are fearless in getting and keeping Jake’s newly built racing car moving, while the female student librarians do everything possible to keep the library open and running.

Author Richard Peck tells a fast moving gem of a story filled with speed, color, flash and fun. Stock cars and characters are timelessly alive.

Peck is a continuing master who here gives us one of the best books of the year.
