Living today as if tomorrow never comes…

After surviving an attempted suicide, Tom Jones, a shy Christian adolescent, learns to use writing in his diary as a means of communicating with himself as his family settles in on a new life in West Texas. High school football in Texas seems to be the states’ unofficial religion, yet it’s the emerging of television, “the new God,” that starts to have a stronghold in shaping Tom’s newly found pop culture world of the 1970’s.

“The Game” begins when star quarterback Reggie Thomas moves in across the street and takes Tom under his wing, tutoring Tom on the road to the end of innocence. Will the duo score on a last
ditch drive to escape with their souls intact, or will they find out how easy it is to get lost in the forbidding world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll?

Just as the Stone Age and Ice Age were both lost to history, Tom’s diary journals how the Teen Age somehow got lost in history as this page-turner continues to unfold masterfully, sure to leave readers laughing at the anecdotes on an unforgettable journey down memory lane.
