From the Publisher:
You have to love your family. You do, even if you don't, right? You don't have to understand them or play tennis with them, but you have to love them. It's a rule, and it's the kind of rule you don't break unless you're some kind of animal.
My brother happens to be some kind of animal. My sister rides this sweet gold Honda scooter and has amazing hair. You'd hate her. My parents are vegetarian let-the-sunshine-in freaks. Lovable freaks but freaks all the same. My grandfather possesses a shocking comb-over, a kilt, about half of his original marbles, and his own golf complex. This summer, we are all working for him. It is going to be two hot, lucrative, carefree months of paradise.
Or, possibly something else.
The son of annoying hippie parents, brother of a bully, and grandson of a money-obsessed golf course owner, Onion Jock has a pretty jaded view of life. When he spends the summer helping out at the golf course, which he loves, 13-year-old Jock learns more about his family background than he wants to. Chris Lynch is also the author of ICEMAN.
