My friend and fellow writer, Lisa Nowak, has her first novel for sale and I recommend it not just because she is a friend but because it is very well-written and draws you in.  Here is a synopsis of her unique story:
Cody Everett has a temper as hot as the flashpoint of racing fuel, and it’s landed him at his uncle’s trailer, a last-chance home before military school. But how can he take the guy seriously when he calls himself Race, eats Twinkies for breakfast, and pals around with rednecks who drive in circles every Saturday night?
What Cody doesn’t expect is for the arrangement to work. Or for Race to become the friend and mentor he’s been looking for all his life. But just as Cody begins to settle in and get a handle on his supercharged temper, a crisis sends his life spinning out of control. Everything he’s come to care about is threatened, and he has to choose between falling back on his old, familiar anger or stepping up to prove his loyalty to the only person he’s ever dared to trust.

Cody is a character that you will love.  He is a troubled youth who finds that there is a place for him and he flourishes.  But there are a few speed bumps along the way. Join in the journey and evolve with him.  
His Uncle Race is a race car driver and the type of guy you cannot help but be fond of. 
The author herself used to be an amateur stock car driver and she has brought her knowledge of racing and cars into this book. This is a young adult book but adults also enjoy it.
The story does not end here!  Lisa has about three other follow-up novels with these characters.  You will want to read them all.
You can go here to purchase it in several different Ebook formats, such as HTML, JavaScript, Kindle, Epub, PDF, Plain Text, and others for only $2.99.  That is an amazing bargain for a good read!
