Where the Hell Were Your Parents? is a coming-of-age true story about what happens when you let your kids run feral — it’s half Goodfellas, half Stand By Me, and three-quarters Dukes of Hazzard.This comic memoir is an unapologetic romp through the rural South with the Weathington Boys, the most scrumptious delinquents since Huckleberry Finn. Nathan and Brian are identical twin brothers who fight for their lives against gun-toting good ole boys, a sexually aggressive hyena, the FBI, and even Jesus. With a handful of illegal fireworks the boys join forces with the infamous 10-year-old getaway driver Ray ‘Corn Dog’ Womack to form an adolescent version of the A-Team. Years of country chaos ensue, and the boys ultimately find themselves trapped in a high stakes practical joke war. Victory will bring immortality, but one wrong move and they will be taking group showers in a rural Alabama prison.

Praise For Where the Hell Were Your Parents?…
"Nathan Weathington makes a good case for himself as a published writer and exceptional humorist, and I find most of his outspoken observations to be both substantive and relevant to the times. I'll thank him now for some of the most gut-wrenchingly painful laughs I've ever had." - Chanticleer Book Reviews. "Just the right amount of wrong. For those of us north of the Mason-Dixon Line, it’s a book for people who really, really want to believe ‘The Dukes of Hazard’ was a documentary." - Jody Carrow, Editor in Chief, the Claremont Review - -
