​A YOUNG MAN ON THE VERGE OF ADULTHOOD. . . Star Wainwright lives in a small town in rural America. There are no tall buildings or crowded streets and very little to do other than hang out with friends. Occasionally, some savvy business owner puts an arcade game room in the city part of town which instantly becomes the local attraction for many kids. But not Star. The kid with the unusual name has little ambition other than to stay home and let his mother take care of him. His interests are playing basketball and home. But something happens to this mama's boy that turns his world around. High school. Yes, even a kid with little desire to do anything except stay home has to attend high school! The Back Road to Success is the coming-of-age story of a young man who finds his way in the world by trial and error. Star's journey toward manhood is both humorous and painfully familiar, and his story represents the universal struggle of growing up, even when you don't want to!
