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.

    Great Characters and Great Action

    White Heat, White Ashes is Ted Simmons' most gripping novel yet. His characters are presented with strong points as well as flaws, often naive, all the while maintaining the fast moving action revolving around the frightening reality of racial bigotry and underground militias. <BR/>I felt a little bit of myself in each of the protagonists, which I can only attribute to good writing. The complex social structure of high school aged "children" is painfully clear. Though the story is primarily presented from a boy's perspective, one that is sadly lacking in our literature, it should be equally compelling for girls/women as well; emotional pain and confusion are universal.<BR/>Buy this for yourself and give a copy to your kids, nieces, nephews, and friends. It would be a wonderful way of starting a dialog on racism in today's United States.
