Sammy, Skovron’s guitar hero, is both compassionate and humble. He tries to balance his personal ambitions with time to be there for both his family and his friends. Sammy’s explanation of the songwriting process offers insight into the technique without overdramatizing the artistic process. Throughout the book, we see a full progression that goes into the song he hopes will win the contest, “Plastic Baby.” Many real life rock and jazz artists are mentioned too.

A good story about a teenager who loves guitar. If you are a teenager, or play ANY instrument, you will love this book. Sadly, some parts can be a bit over sappy, taking away from the overall humorous tone. 8.5/10 Flaws: Can be sappy. Pros: Author knows how to write a good story, has accurate advice for any musician, but the advice is worked into the story.
