On probation for car theft, Miles has to stand up to his friends and do the right thing. Miles Derkach is in trouble. Along with two friends, he stole a car and went joyriding. When the dust clears, he is all alone and his friends have left, leaving him to take the blame - and the punishment - while maintaining his silence. Placed on probation and sentenced to community service, Miles begins working for a man who after suffering a stroke and not being able to drive, has kept his beloved hot rod under wraps in the garage. Seeing a chance to learn more about cars and pursue his dream of becoming a mechanic, Miles helps to restore the car. When the hot rod is stolen and Miles is the prime suspect, he realizes that he must confront his friends and stand up for himself.

Very good book . Shows what can go wrong with your life when you get in with the wrong crowd , but also what can go right when you leave the bad and pursue what's right. Having some good adults to give you guidance and direction helps too . And being willing to accept the adult's interest in you .
