Vacation took a curious turn for Dexter when he discovered he had a very unusual relationship with Martin Luther King. Dexter couldn't tell his mother, because she was too preoccupied trying to get a promotion. His aunt Nina might've been ...
sympathetic, but she had a drinking problem. His cousin Alexis was definitely not an option either. She was too busy teasing him about carrying around a big stuffed dog named Fang. But Dexter had received Fang the day his dad died and had no intentions of ever getting rid of his furry best friend. Although he was very smart, there were some things that Dexter simply didn't understand. Why was Mr. Hummel so intent for him to visit the top of the Gateway Arch? How could someone as hateful and selfish as Alexis possibly care for a new baby? And why was Ralph being so friendly to him? As summer wore on, Dexter eventually learned the answers to these questions and began to understand how to apply Martin Luther King's teachings to his own life.
