Leo Caraway is a no-nonsense, Harvard-bound, Young-Republicans-president teenager. When he gets caught "cheating," his entire life seems to fall apart. He only has one option, the last place he would ever go to find help, his dad. His biological father is none other than a famous punk rock star named King Maggot. If he can get his dad to pay for his college, then he won't have to worry about the scholarships he lost.
I have to admit to being a little put off by this story at first, but once I got to know Leo's character, I thoroughy enjoyed it. The situations he puts himself into to finally get what he wants are hilarious: throwing yourself on the crowd or trying to find a lost poodle. You have to root for a guy who is willing to make a change and realize what is most important in life. There are a few mentions of band members using drugs and some mature relationships mentioned vaguely. So it may have some issues that are not for every reader, but it's definitely worth trying out if you like a good laugh.
