With this book, I was reading an interview of a young woman NASCAR driver--she was 15 or 16 years old and was labeled one of the young driver's to watch. I was impressed with her and how much she'd accomplished in such a short time when most girls were just getting their learners permits. How hard it must be to be a young woman in such a male-dominated industry. A sixteen-year-old girl surrounded by young men--and beating them in a race car! How do those conversations go in the garage? How about trying to find the balance of not getting lost in being the "tough girl" always trying to prove you were just as "ballsy" as the boys? And that was the birth of CJ--Charlotte Jean. (less)

Horror races across Trevor's face as he stares between the empty Big Gulp cup in his 70k sports car and the bridge traffic we are stuck in, while I yell, "Yes, I'm going to pee in this cup!"(less)
