review 1: I really liked this book. The characters were like able (well the ones who were supposed to be), the plot was harshly realistic, and the ending was satisfying, but not too neat. It left room for the story and struggle of the characters to continue, but took care of the major issues that needed to be resolved. I definitely appreciated that the plot was unidealized, but still left hope for miracles. At times it was a bit slow and on the verge of too tidy, but these parts of the story led directly into a new problem. I liked the themes of this book too; the healing power of music, community, and the impact of just simple kindness. I'd definitely read more from this author.
review 2: So pretty much every character in this book found some way to annoy me. By the tim
... moree you get to the ending you realize it's a pretty sweet (as in kind) book. It's about a guy who gets kicked out and somehow (almost magically) finds a job and starts his new life out. At 14! A lot of things in this book are very unrealistic, but some aren't. I liked it enough but all the guitar lingo I skipped. I mean their is a LOT of guitar talk in here! less

I enjoyed this Golden Sower Nominee. It reminded me a little of Voigt's HOMECOMING.
