Good book. I’m glad there are 2 more after this. You will need to get them because this ends with To be continued dumm dumm dumm I hate cliffhangers so I never read until the series is finished. I waited a while on this one for that reason. There is also the trepidation that I wont like the book that one of my all time favorite authors wrote. Being honest-here I go:

Gloom follows Dustin wherever his family goes His mother is a drug addict and his Dad is gggrrrrr I can’t say too much but he is a dead *ss loser. The first time he showed up at a race, he watched but never spoke to Dustin. I really thought, when his character was revealed, he was going to want to come in and take money, sponsorships and bring drama. He did a lot of that but it was because he was just a loser. Somewhat scary dealings will come into play. This is the part that was, for me, the best part, a little ATF and FBI story that grows was the opposite direction that surprised me for sure.  

His “family” is the Judge family and anyone he races with. Hannah and Tommy were best friends with Dustin since age 7. The history is there. A great foundation to build on. For some reason Amanda, the mother is all of a sudden more into the image she has, bothering me. It seems like her and Hannah are drifting. 

Solid friendship with Bailey is important too. The girls need each other a lot. The characters evolve into young adults as the story goes on. There is a cliffhanger, which I hate, but it is necessary. Miss Ginger did it again! A must read
