About the Book

Guitar Boy

Travis Tacey doesn’t have it easy: his mom’s in the hospital suffering from brain trauma after a terrible car accident, and his father has lost his good sense in the aftermath and kicked him out. Homeless, penniless, and only 14 years old, Travis tries to make money off of his singing and guitar playing skills. But when his beloved guitar --- a family heirloom --- is stolen, Travis grows desperate. By a stroke of luck, he gets a job helping a guitar maker. Through Travis’s love of music, his devotion to his family, and the kindness of strangers, he begins to find his way in the world. But how will he keep his family together?
