If, however, you are offended by statements like "Oh, the redheaded pit bunny? You can tap that ass; she comes with the car", then I would steer clear.
I think that this book was great because it is of my interest. I like fast cars and racing so I like this book a lot. The way kyle and his brother argued and how competative they are made it interesting, and Kyle still could play in the band.

Kyle has to make a decision about what he wants to do with his life. He has to decide if he wants to be like the rest of his family and race, or find away out of that Hildabrand name, like his Uncle Ken. Through the journey he learns alot about his family and himself. And I felt I was with him the entire way to the end.
