Taylor is a typical geeky teenager who wishes he was more like his cool, rebellious older brother. Their dad is long gone, and their mom is more interested in dating than parenting. When Taylor gets the chance to connect with some of the cool guys from school, and get a taste of what it’s like not to be the good kid all the time, he jumps at it.
But the Straight-A student isn’t ready for how quickly events can spiral out of control, and the consequences threaten to destroy the life he’s built for himself, along with the tenuous family relationships he’s fostered to this point. He needs to find a way out, but he has no clue which direction to go. The only person there to help him is his brother, and time is running out before the world crashes in around them.
The Slingshot explores the power and permanence of brotherhood to overcome even the most shocking obstacles that life presents, and how the love of family can endure through it all.
Suggested age range: 15 to adult
