Born to Rock by Gordon Korman

You know it's a good book when you can't put it down and you read half of it in one day, right? Well that's what reading Born to Rock by Gordon Korman is like...I picked up the advance reading copy of this book at the Public Libraries Association conference in March. I was drawn to it by the cover which shows a baby with its hair in a mohawk!

The premise is that Leo Caraway doesn't find out until he is 17 that his biological dad is a famous punk rock musician from the 80s. He wouldn't even care about finding out about him because he loves his dad and doesn't want to upset his mom but he needs money to finance his college education at Harvard!

So he gets to know his "bio dad" by going on tour with him over the summer as a roadie! Read this book, you won't be disappointed!
