Jayden Jackson is always in trouble. He has a quick temper and gets detention on the regular. When Jayden meets rule-following Eli, they find common ground in the music they love. But Jayden can't tell Eli the truth behind his anger: that his dad is in jail. Jayden has fun hanging out with Eli, but can he really let another person in and show them who he really is?

About the Author:
Charley Pickle holds an MFA and is a published poet and short fiction author. In sixth grade, Pickle wore a historically accurate Shakespeare costume to school on Halloween. Sadly, no one else dressed up. Feeling rather pathetic, Pickle quickly changed into inspirational Shaquille O’Neal gym clothes. Charley Pickle definitely knows what it’s like to be a weirdo and often seeks weirdo friends, as they usually have tremendously good senses of humor. Pickle can be found on Twitter at @charley_pickle.
