Book Summary

When Leo Caraway, president of the Young Republicans Club, gets his scholarship to Harvard taken away, he turns to his real father, a lead singer in a punk rock band whom Leo has just recently learned is his father, in hopes that dad will pay for his tuition, but Leo's summer job as the band's roadie teaches him a lot about his dad, his friends, and himself.
