Description
 
From the author of the award-winning debut novel, The Book of Moon..."An exceptional coming-of-age tale! Wonderful characters-and the perfect balance of humor and poignancy." -Lesley Kagen, author of Every Now and Then, The Mutual Admiration Society, and Whistling in the Dark


Got it!

Thats the mantra of Gregory "Friz" Collins, a Texas boy who chases footballs like a border collie romping after frisbees-until a concussion knocks him clear into another hemisphere.

Friz is not one in a million-hes one in many millions. Because...

Injuring his brain...opens his mind.

When it rewires, Friz has an astounding new ability.

THE BOY WHO HAS NEVER PICKED UP A GUITAR CAN NOW PLAY ONE LIKE A ROCKSTAR.

He is an "acquired savant"-a rare individual whose brain takes a spectacular turn for the better following serious injury.

Naturally, there are consequences-sudden celebrity and viral notoriety. Worse, he is tormented by guilt... for a crime he cant remember committing.

Frizs path forward leads to the Mississippi Delta with three colorful bluesmen, where he finds himself while nearly losing his life.

On the way, his eyes open wide to racism, white privilege-and the meaning of true friendship.
