WHY I FIGHT
J. Adams Oaks' first novel
Wyatt Reaves sits down next to you, bloodied and soaking wet, and he is NOT happy. Are you brave enough to stay? To listen to what he’s got to say? He’s on his own for the first time, and he doesn’t know what to do. He may only be 17 1/2, but he’s huge– Get him to spread out like an X across asphalt and you’ve got the parking space for a car. But Wyatt’s been lying down for too long. But what does Wyatt deserve? Living in a car? Trailer park pals? A new woman mothering him all the time? Liquor? Tattoos? Bare-fist fights? Role-models like his uncle? Wyatt will tell you his adventures, if you listen…. It’s not a pretty road, but growing up never is.
