AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Joel Billings is in trouble. He's picked on; he never gets to go on the off shore father-son fishing competition. Joel decides to put an ad in the paper for a dad. His gran always tells him not to talk to strangers and his friend Mei thinks it's a dangerous idea. Joel could end up with anybody. And he does. What is he going to do now with his pretend dad? One with tats and leathers and a name like Dev Eagle? (Source: Author's website)
