Ds a new soloist in Garvey and through chorus Garvey finds a way to accept himself and a way to finally reach his distant father by speaking the language of music instead of the language of sport. Amazing book written in Tanka form poetry I foresee this as a powerful read for any adolescent This book gives voice to what many young men fear not living up to the expectationsvision of their father The novel in verse also does an excellent job of looking at issues like obesity not conforming to societal pressures and bullying Peers relationalI just love how this book gives voice to issues from a male adolescent perspectiveFor me this book was an amazing window and hopefully a doorway as I am raising a son It is a great reminder for me to always listen to what he is interested in and don t fall into the feeling or pressure for him to conform to what societal pressures we may feelI highly recommend this book
