Living with Fred: A Novel
Mark Cloud is back in Fred, Texas but Fred is not the same. The town drunk has got religion. One of Mark's classmates has started spitting out scriptures like a gumball machine. But more drastic things are in store for this small East Texas town. And for Mark. Once again a forgotten book buried on a dusty library shelf incites revolution. Mark begins to ask troublesome questions. Mark begins a pilgrimage that challenges the open-mindedness of his father and the forbearance of the deacons. As his answers lead him further down the path of least expectance, he ultimately finds himself facing the fear that haunts every PK: I could cost my dad his job. Mark must choose between remaining faithful to his understanding of the gospel or appeasing the prejudices of those with the power to make his family pay for his decisions.
