Super Stock Rookie Will Weaver

Super Stock Rookie by Will Weaver This is the second book in The Motor series. When Saturday Night Dirt, the first book was released to help promote it and literacy, Weavers publishers Farrar, Straus and Giroux co-sponsored his super stock car the Bookmobile Though I haven't read Saturday Night Dirt, I was still able to enjoy Super Stock Rookie. Trace Bonham drives a stock car on a small Minnesota track. He has a chance to try out for a large sponsor Team Blu. Trace is a little suspicious of their motives and unsure if he's willing to leave his friends and family behind. Patrick is smart on and off the track. The car is Patrick's instrument, his ears can pick up any trouble under the hood. The author does an excellent job describing the fast paced action on the track allowing the reader to visualize the race. Weaver writes a very good story and yes the strength is in the races but he doesn't neglect character development and a story line. Young fans of vehicular speed sports will love Super Stock Rookie.

Super Stock Rookie is scheduled to be released on March 17
