Freeze Tag on the Highway
If you're dreading the coming of winter and wish to remember the warm days listening to the lapping waves of a lake, we have something you might be interested in. So long as you're okay with the idea of stealing drugs from kids to get high while they go Lord of the Flies on each other.
In Freeze Tag on the Highway, Brian Krans ruthlessly intertwines images of picturesque summers and the chaos of being a teenager.
Freeze Tag on the Highway has been called "gripping...darkly funny...twisted..." by Green Apple Books, while readers are calling it, "raw, completely unfiltered, and... pharmaceutically correct."
The Midwest Book Review called Freeze Tag on the Highway, "...a thriller that brings terror in its potential closeness to reality, highly recommended."
With all that said, the book takes place during the last week of summer at Camp Wazeecha, a therapeutic, confidence-boosting camp for teens with developmental disorders, low self-esteem, and authority issues.
While the brochure promises positive results, the camp’s director, Jake, sedates himself with the kids' medication while leaving them to play on the jungle gyms of their chemical imbalances. When most of the staff quits in protest, Jake is forced to watch a few of the kids he despises more than the camp itself.
Released by Rock Town Press in July 2011.
