About the Book

Aim

As World War II threatens the United States in 1941, 14 year-old Junior Bledsoe fights his own battles at home. Junior struggles with school and with anger --- at his father, his insufferable granddaddy, his neighbors and himself --- as he desperately tries to understand himself and find his own aim in life. But he finds relief in escaping to the quiet of the nearby woods and tinkering with cars, something he learned from his Pop and a fatherly neighbor provides much-needed guidance. This heartfelt and inspiring prequel to the author’s BLUE and COMFORT also includes an author’s note and bibliography.
