Jeremy's band is hot--really hot. Thunderbowl is on the way up and they have had their first big break--a long-term gig at a local bar. The only problem is that while Jeremy should be doing his homework and keeping up in school, he is spending most nights in a rowdy club, trying to keep the band together while his life is falling apart. Trying to balance his dreams of success with the hard realities of the music business, Jeremy is forced to make some tough choices.

Also available in Spanish.

Industry Reviews

"Choyce creates a book in which the plot starts quickly and the reader is instantly attached to the main character...Any teacher or librarian who works with reluctant readers should definitely include this book."-- (02/01/2005)
"The story line is well peppered with tension and action. The subject matter and brusque style of presentation may also help to invite teen readers to turn off the rock music and pick up the book. Recommended."-- (01/01/2005)
"Jeremy is a believable and multidimensional character - mature, thoughtful and not always predictable in his actions...The power of the story lies in the depiction of a young man making his own decisions and taking responsibility for the consequences."-- (09/01/2004)
"This book would certainly appeal to teenagers. The language is inviting without being intimidating. Jeremy's voice rings true as it highlights his passion for music...The story deals with teenage angst without being corny or superficial."-- (01/01/2005)
