From Cuba to Cullman, Alabama, the dramatics continue in this follow-up to The Troubles of Johnny Cannon, an action-packed adventure that Booklist called “a book that addresses important historical events with tact and poignancy.”
Johnny Cannon is back, and he’s still got problems. He’s trying to find a happy ending with Martha Macker, whom he’s accidentally told he loves like a sister. His best friend’s Willie’s family is being pressured to move out of Cullman to who knows where. A pregnant lady’s shown up and claims she carrying his deceased brother’s baby. His Pa is still using the radio in the garage, calling himself and his two friends “the Three Caballeros.” And to make matters worse, the Mafia has a price tag on Johnny’s head twice the size of Cuba. Johnny Cannon is going to need all the help he can get.
