and High Plains, Texas looks like it's about to go up in a ball of fire. At least that's what Tom Greer, the street-fighting, hooky-playing twelve-year old narrator of WANDERING STAR says. With religious fervor and hard drinking and talk of Halley's comet, Tom doesn't know what to think. Then when Sam Adams, the newly arrived newspaper editor comes to town, Tom has found someone he can talk to and an interest in journalism. Except for one thing--Tom's mother, the Widder Geer who wants her boy doing things her way. Fiercely narrow-minded, she's sure the world is coming to an end. She might just be right, or it might just be beginning for her precocious boy, Tom, and the world he is about to take by storm....
