Harbinger “Harry” Jones was severely burned when he was 8 years old. Music takes him away from a world of pain and has become his escape. Finally, in high school he starts a Punk Rock band with a friend. The band helps Harry find a place for himself in the world and he writes his college essay about his life experiences. The essay is brilliantly funny.     (Booktalk by Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Award Committee)
