Car racing is not my thing, and I cannot remember the last time I read a story that was touted as `wholesome.' In the age of zombies, horror, and thrillers vying for attention, Pursuit of a Dream seems out of favor with the current trend ... but, and this is a HUGE BUT, what isn't out of favor is excellent writing and storytelling, and this is what Mr. Pruneda provides.
The theme is universal - a young boy is tested at an early age. How he chooses to rise to the occasion will determine the outcome of his life pursuit.
I view this story as a parable for anyone who has ever had a dream. Though dreams come true, what is the cost and is it worth it? These are questions each of us wrestles with daily, and Mr. Pruneda does it with eloquence in his book.
