I had decided I would have a future.
Will can see his future stretch out before him. It's as clear as the plains that lead to La Junta and the first-place prize at the rodeo. He will become a man, a cowboy with a life of his own. But his twin brother, Denny, follows, bringing with him the memory of that small white scar. Ahead lies adventure; behind, responsibility. And on the road between, Will and Denny will travel together -- brothers united by blood.

With a slight Western accent, Steven Boyer tells the story of Will and his brain-damaged identical twin, Denny. During their fifteenth summer Will grapples with conflicting emotions. Torn between his love of ranch life and rodeo events and his feelings of obligation toward his brother, Will harbors a combination of patience and frustration. It is only when Denny unexpectedly accompanies him on a forbidden rodeo trip that Will is able to reconcile their relationship. Descriptions of ranch and rodeo life are especially good, with the pace of the narration increasing as the rodeo events unfold. Boyer captures the anger and pain of both brothers with distinct voices. A flash flood, an encounter with a rattlesnake, and the desire for a satisfying future for both brothers keep the listener engaged.
