Monday, October 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm

As the son of one of the biggest rock stars of all time, 17-year-old Blade Morrison has grown up in an atmosphere of parties, paparazzi, and celebrity encounters. He also has to deal with his drug-addicted father, whose yearning to make a musical comeback overshadows Blade’s desire to have a normal life. When Blade learns a family secret that causes him to question everything he’s ever known, he travels from Los Angeles to Ghana to find answers. Newbery Award-winner Alexander teams up with Hess to tell this fast-paced story about addiction, ethics, and personal identity. Blade’s rollercoaster-like journey of self-discovery is documented in free verse, reading like a YA rock opera that will keep teens on the edge of their seats. Ages 14 and up.

In addition to these two co-authors, Randy Preston will be on guitar.
