Synopsis

Struts and Frets by Jon Skovron

This title offers a bright debut about forming a band, falling in love and facing the truth. Music is in Sammy's blood. His grandfather was a jazz musician and Sammy's band could be huge one day - if they don't self-destruct first. Winning the upcoming Battle of the Bands would justify all the band's compromises and reassure Sammy that his life's dream could be a reality. But practices are hard to schedule when Sammy's grandfather is sick and getting worse, his mother is too busy to help either of them and his best friend may want to be his girlfriend. When everything in his life seems to be headed for major catastrophe, will his music be enough to keep him together? Told in a voice that's honest, urgent and hilarious, Sammy's story will resonate not only with teenage musicians but anyone who ever sat up all night listening to a favourite CD, wondering if they'll ever find their place in the world.
