Overview

Coming of age is never easy, especially for seventeen-year-old Peter Grayson. Still grieving his father's suicide, Peter and his mother move to a small Texas town. Other than his girlfriend Jennifer and best friend Jerrod, Peter finds it difficult to fit in.
When a family of Hispanic workers is killed in a tragic fire, Peter is scrutinized by the police. Suddenly, his world makes little sense. His best friend ignores him, and he is lured into the frightening world of a secret militia.
Peter becomes the unlikely hero: saving Jerrod and his sister, undermining a second hate-crime tragedy, and finding the courage to believe in his convictions. White Heat, White Ashes is a fast-paced, dramatic adventure told with humor, compassion, and huge doses of the reality of the underbelly of racial bigotry.
