A powerful new book from Eric Gansworth, author of If
I Ever Get Out of Here, that speaks the truth on race,
relationships, and rock from two unforgettable perspectives.
Carson Mastick is entering his senior year of high school
and desperate to make his mark, on the reservation and off.
A rock band -- and winning Battle of the Bands -- is his
best shot. But things keep getting in the way. Small matters
like the lack of an actual band, or his brother getting shot
by the racist owner of a local restaurant.
Maggi Bokoni has just moved back to the reservation with her

Carson and Maggi -- along with their friend Lewis -- will
navigate loud protests, even louder music, and first love in
this stirring novel about coming together in a world defined
