Abstract:

Seventeen-year-old Ben must deal with a violent white-supremacy hate group in his small Montana town because his father and his friends are involved with it. Seventeen-year-old Ben has just moved to a trailer park where his dad doesn't have a job. The family is befriended by a local mechanic who runs a white supremacist organization. At first Ben finds it easy to believe the rhetoric but soon realizes the danger in propagating hatred. Seventeen-year-old Ben has just moved from a ranch where his dad was the foreman, to a trailer park where his dad doesn't have a job. His dad has befriended a local mechanic who runs what seems to be a men's support group but is in fact a white supremacist organization. At first Ben finds it easy to believe the rhetoric and is soon blaming gays, Jews and other groups for all his problems. Ben and his brother, David participate in the group's horrible activities, but with the help of new friends who challenge his thinking, Ben soon realizes the danger in propagating hatred. Ben may be able to save himself, but has his younger brother already gone too far?
