13 year-old Jon Brennan is living an idyllic, innocent life on the farm, when a cataclysmic event at a 4th of July picnic lets him know that life is not always what it seems. The horrifying calamity forces young Jon to solve a difficult puzzle created long before he was born. Throughout the chaos that has become his life, Jon is supported by his faithful friend Roy as they negotiate the treacherous path of adolescence. Young Jon experiences all the raw emotions of youth--rage, hatred, fear, love, honor, and understanding as the story winds toward its inevitable, explosive climax. An enduring slice of Americana is revealed of an earlier, seemingly gentler time, as clues to the past are revealed and Jon learns that one tragic decision from the past can create a ripple effect felt through generations. Aided by the nearly incoherent ramblings of a demented grandfather, Jon finally puts the clues together and learns that while times change, the heart of man never really does.
