From the Publisher:
Raising Dragons is a contemporary fantasy novel, the first of a series of books for pre-teens and young adults. Along with a unique blend of fantasy and real life, it delivers action, danger, and inspiration through the adventures of two young teens, Billy Bannister and Bonnie Silver. The kids at school call Billy Dragon Breath for good reason. His breath is bad! It isn’t the normal, morning-mouth bad; it’s the hot-as-fire, don’t-you-dare-get-near-me bad. And hearing Dragon Breath ringing in his ears, he constantly tries to cool his oral volcano. Trouble erupts when his hot breath sets off the fire sprinklers in the boys’ restroom at school, and his parents learn that they’ve kept their secret for too long. Billy finally discovers the secret. His father was once a dragon! Now that’s a piece of news a guy doesn’t deal with every day! Billy feels betrayed, alien, lost. When his father reverts to his dragon form, and dragon slayers chase them both, he learns to trust his father again, battling the slayers with weapons of steel and spirit. Bonnie, an orphan, tries to find a home, someone to love her, even though she feels like a freak because of a body feature that she calls a deformity, her dragon wings, inherited from her now dead dragon mother. She discovers that her love for others and her faith in a Creator hold the answers she is looking for.
