Boy Seeking Band

Great music and great friendships aren’t always in harmony. Terence Kato is a prodigy bass player, but he’s determined to finish middle school on a high note. Life has other plans. In eighth grade, he’s forced to transfer from a private arts school to a public school, where the kids seemingly speak a different language. Luckily, Terence knows a universal one: music. The teen sets out to build a rock band and, in the process, make a few friends. From the acclaimed author of Brooklyn, Burning and Guy in Real Life comes a fresh, funny, genuine novel about enjoying life beyond the opening act.

Reviews

Publishers Weekly

"Brezenoff (Guy in Real Life) touches on many concerns and stresses in Terence’s life, including his father’s depression, being bullied, and his elitist attitude toward the arts program at Franklin. . . .the disaffected tone of the narration nicely mirrors Terence’s angst, and his friendship with the band’s vocalist, Meredith “Eddie” Carson, is well developed." - Publishers Weekly

Kirkus Reviews

"...the story is comfortably uplifting. Music fans will delight in (and most likely run to look up) the dizzying array of musicians mentioned. . . .culminates in a feel-good read." - Kirkus Reviews
