Keith DeLong and polio-stricken best friend, Flea, overcame individual hurdles in the first novel, 'If Bullfrogs Had Wings'. This sequel is set two years later and contains more events of striving against the odds to get 'Out of the Rough'. Family, friendship, and mountain-grown determination bring one individual out of the darkness to grasp the rainbow of his dreams.

Keith's life is smashed by a series of terrible trials out of his control. watches his dreams smashed by a series of events, out of his control. This historical novel shows the life of an eighteen-year-old dealing with harsh realities and making tough choices for his family. Obstacles ranging from loss, fear, abandoning dreams, and a dance with death are much more than Keith ever imagined. Life deals the cards - Keith plays them. With mountain-grown determination, he overcomes and reaches his dream. This is fully realized as he and Flea walk side-by-side on the green grass of victory. This trilogy is my personal favorites out of my ten novels. The final book in 'The McComas Trilogy' is 'A Golden Round'. "Thank you for sharing your time to read my work. I'd sure appreciate an honest review on Amazon. Keep smilin'... "

Review by YA author Larry Webb:

Just finished "If Bullfrogs Had Wings" and "Out of the Rough" by Lee Carey. Both are great books, but I think I enjoyed "Out of the Rough" the best. To obtain the best effect, read them back to back in order.

Lee crammed a lot into these two books--life lessons, priorities, working through adversity, and more. He emphasizes the fact that the words, "I" and "Me" are the two smallest words in the English lexicon. Words like family, friendship, love, devotion, and courage are among the largest.

Once you've convinced yourself that no more disasters could possibly happen, one does. I challenge any "normal" person to read through the two-book series and stay dry-eyed. In the verbiage of the Flea, "It ain't gonna happen."
