Summary
"Boy, when Fate opens up it opens up with both barrels. See what happens now I'm in trouble? See the awesome power of trouble. Trouble fucken rocks." "Fifteen-year-old Vernon Gregory Little is in trouble. And it has something to do with the recent massacre of 16 students at his high school. News of the tragedy serves as open invitation to the media and soon the quirky backwater of Martirio is flooded with wannabe CNN hacks all-too-keen to lay claim to their 15 minutes, and lay the blame for the killings at Vernon's feet. Eulalio Ledesma, in particular, sniffs out his opportunity to make good at Vernon's expense and as the media net tightens, and the twisted desires of the townsfolk for a scapegoat reach fever-pitch, Vernon finds himself drawn into a series of increasingly bizarre circumstances." "Eventually, with the LSD safely deposited and diluted in the ginseng, and essential travel funds procured from a distasteful trade-off with old Mr. Deutschman, he succumbs to the workings of Fate and takes off for Mexico and a date - or so he hopes - with the divine Taylor Figueroa."--BOOK JACKET
