The King of Pacoima

Authored by David Mickey Evans
Edition: 1

In the late 1960's, Mike and Bobby, two young brothers, move across country, from east to west with their single parent mother. When she re-marries, for a brief moment in time, all is well. But soon, their new step-father, who they call The King, brings darkness into their otherwise bright young lives. When it becomes increasingly obvious that Bobby's life is in danger, older brother Mike concocts a plan called The Big Idea. Their only weapon against the abusive hopelessness they face is their boundless imaginations. With the faith and hope that only children can wield, they highly modify their Radio Flyer wagon, and pray that their imaginations will manifest physically in their all-too-real-world, and enable the wagon to actually fly, and carry Bobby away to far off lands where he will forever be safe from the terrors of The King.
