Hamilton Alexander is (was?) a brat. Ham's parents decide that something concrete has to be done as Hamilton is not following the restrictions associated with being grounded. The boy transforms over the course of the summer despite a couple of lapses.
For those who read the thread "9,626 words and now I hate them" ( http://bransomtx.forumotion.net/t8008-9626-words-and-now-i-realize-i-hate-them#99533 ) will recognize the story.
I still struggle with this story even though it has posted and even though I resolved most of my personal issues with it. I do love Hamilton.
I hope the series comes to pass as planned but we will see how the readers respond to Hamilton.
Ham is a really great kid - he just needs help finding the great kid that is inside him.
It is long but I thought the length became necessary.
(I am discouraged as my first, and only so far, feedback said only, "This story is too long." It was from one of my regular readers and so my initial fears were confirmed.)
I love the story and I truly love Hamilton and I hope you all do as well.
