Bret doesnt mind standing out from the crowd when hes on stage acting or singing in his band. And he feels at home in his funky girlfriends arms because sticking out together doesnt seem as hard. But loyalties arent what Bret thinks they are, as his safe havens seem to disappear one by one, and he learns that sometimes you just have to risk getting hammered in order to build a great future. For any teen who feels that standing out is harder than just conforming. Patrick Joness second novel nails the real truth about the high price of hiding ones true self.
