James Clayton Rogers

Author James Clayton Rogersabout this book: When a cereal company recently pulled a commercial because of the adverse reaction to its portrayal of a happy interracial family, we learned that race antagonism in America remains an issue far from resolution. This is painfully revealed among youths in a loose-knit backwoods community, where sex and jealousy roil young hormones and fuel race hatred. When Ash Mason finds out that his old girlfriend is dating a black football player from their high school, he steals his father's gun, fully intending to kill his beloved and her beau. His feckless and drug-addled friend does his best to dissuade him, but his efforts are sabotaged by his own inadequacy. He is especially appalled when Ash brings his gun onto school property, bringing them both perilously close to catastrophe. In the meantime, parents and other adults unwittingly ensnarl themselves in Ash's widening grief, making them participants and, ultimately, victims. Tragedy and enlightenment ensue when Ash's plan goes dreadfully awry.
