How Lamar's Bad Prank Won a Bubba-Sized Trophy
Outside of the bowling alley, Lamar is dealing with some pretty serious issues at home. Since his mom died, he feels like no one really cares about him. His dad is all wrapped up in Lamar's older brother, Xavier the basketball savior, and the brothers' relationship is worse than bad.
When Lamar tries to get some attention from this super fine soccer goddess at Strikers, he begins to realize that maybe all those pranks weren't as funny to everyone else as they were to him.
Things really take a turn for the worse when Lamar starts hanging out with Billy Jenks. Lamar has always heard that Billy is a delinquent, but he seems so different now that they are spending more time together. But time with Billy is causing problems with Sergio and making Lamar focus on all the negative parts of his family life.
At least he has something to look forward to; his bowling idol, Bubba Sanders is coming to town on the fourth of July.
But Lamar makes one colossally bad decision that jeopardizes everything. Holy crackers and cream cheese! Now he has to try to find a way to be a real man and earn the respect of his family and friends all over again.
This book will make you laugh out loud and make you think! This is the first book from Corpus Christi author, Crystal Allen.
