Then, his parents start arguing and cant seem to stop. Next thing, his dad, a captain in the Air Force, up and disappears on the night of the Summer Solstice. Rumors abound. Is Captain Stringer AWOL? Did he desert? Jimmy knows better, but he doesnt know where his dad has gone or why he didnt leave a note or some sign, if not for him, at least for his mom. Relying on the help of his two buddies, Lupe and Billy Ray, Jimmy makes it through a tough West Texas summer. Finally, school starts again. Walking home from a high school football game on the Autumnal Equinox, Jimmy sees an unusual shooting star appear to land behind a neighbors house. The next day, he watches that neighbors little Chihuahua, Elmer, explode in Mr. Cadwalladers barbershop. Nothing is at it should be, but something tells Jimmy its all related to his dad disappearing, and, just maybe, he and his friends can put it together and get his dad back.
