Opinion

From Library Staff

Sammy Bojar is in a band with a lame name and a scary, talentless lead singer. As he struggles to gain control of his own songwriting career, he is helped by his neurotic jazz pianist grandfather and his old best friend/new girlfriend.

Sammy, Skovron’s guitar hero, is both compassionate and humble. He tries to balance his personal ambitions with time to be there for both his family and his friends. Sammy’s explanation of the songwriting process offers insight into the technique without overdramatizing the artistic process. Throughout the book, we see a full progression that goes into the song he hopes will win the contest, “Plastic Baby.” Many real life rock and jazz artists are mentioned too.
