  "I needed to win and win big, and time was running out." Life for high school student Jim Beauregard is far from all aces. When Hurricane Leland ripped through Florida, it leveled his house - while his mom and little sister were trapped inside. Almost a year later, still blaming himself for their deaths, Jim lives with his overweight and disabled Aunt Mel in a FEMA trailer park. With an eviction date looming, Jim's got to earn enough money for a new place, fast. But Jim's luck plummets when his nemesis, Hollis Mulwray - a rich, prep-school jerk who shares Jim's interest in Kathy Montgomery - dupes him into digging up a septic tank on a work site. This ends Jim's employment pretty quickly. Deciding to go all in, Jim takes his and Aunt Mel's savings to a gambling ring. There, in an old, abandoned house with dangerous (and possibly crazy) older men, Jim tries to win his life back at the poker table. But more could be at stake than he realizes.
