Steve wants to be like any other kid on a normal summer break. But when he learns that his dad is keeping a dragon-sized secret, all hope of ‘normal’ is gone. Now, it’s exciting. And dangerous.
Joy’s manic depressive mother drives her crazy. Justin’s mildly autistic behavior alienates him from his family. Steve’s stutter returns with a vengeance. The middle schoolers are determined to enjoy summer in spite of their challenges. Then, Steve hides away in his dad’s truck to see where he goes so early in the morning and finds a family legacy at the end of a muddy trail. Suddenly, summer becomes about much more than having fun.
When a bunch of teenagers harass Steve and his friends, Steve discovers that his stutter is a magical language that protects them. It also acts as a beacon. Now, Steve is in danger and, since his dad has gone far away to work, he is forced to take refuge at his crazy grandmother’s house. She doesn’t even have a TV! It’s a good thing Joy and Justin get to visit and help entertain him and his annoying little sister.
In a deep mud pit, the dragon blissfully snores away. Hundreds of miles to the south, a demon sees a chance to destroy its ancient enemy. Mammon, the demon, hates dragons. And when it senses an opportunity to take one down, Mammon jumps on it. Well, it would if it had legs and wasn’t made of smoke. When the demon and his human flunkies come to town, three friends, a ninja granny, some surfer dudes, and a stutter are all that stands between the determined demon and the dozing dragon.
Is that good enough? It better be. Because everyone knows, it is always best to let sleeping dragons lie.
