Description

A Michael L. Printz Honor Book Troy Billings is seventeen, 296 pounds, friendless, utterly miserable, and about to step off a New York subway platform in front of an oncoming train. Until he meets Curt MacCrae, an emaciated, semi-homeless, high school dropout guitar genius, the stuff of which Lower East Side punk rock legends are made. Never mind that Troy s dad thinks Curt s a drug addict and Troy s brother thinks Troy s the biggest (literally) loser in Manhattan. Soon, Curt s recruited Troy as his new drummer even though Troy can t play the drums. Together, Curt and Troy will change the world of punk, and Troy s own life, forever. "Troy's voice is candid, irreverent, realistic and humorous. A] wonderful, engrossing tale."
