He could have saved them.
When a hurricane ripped through Florida last year, it leveled high school student Jim Beauregard's house―while his mom and sister were trapped inside.
Now "home" is a FEMA trailer, shared with his overweight and disabled aunt. Facing eviction, Jim's got to earn enough money for a new place, fast. But when he loses his construction job after being duped by his nemesis, Hollis Mulwray, Jim's got nothing left. Only by joining an underground poker gambling ring does he see a glimmer of hope―in a roomful of dangerous (and possibly crazy) older men.
But more could be at stake than he realizes.
