Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A Michael L. Printz Honor Book <br> <br> 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.<br> <br> "Troy's voice is candid, irreverent, realistic and humorous. [A] wonderful, engrossing tale."-- SLJ <br> <br> An ALA BBYA<br> <br> A BCCB Blue Ribbon Book<br> <br> A Booklist Editors' Choice<br> <br> An SLJ Best Book of the Year<br> <br> A Miami Herald Best Book of the Year
