Example text

Not a ranch. A farm. He had a sudden memory of a picture hed seen in his American history book, a decaying shack in the middle of a huge field of dust, a place as empty as the moons surface. Uh-uh. No way. He didnt think they had the internet on farms. He was even more sure they didnt have GameBoss and SkullKill. Im definitely not going to any boring farm all summer.

Who built this weird house?
