Summary
"Punk's not dead in rural West Virginia. In this blistering literary debut, it screams from the basement of Rob and Nat Rufus--identical twin brothers with spiked hair, black leather jackets, and the most kick-ass record collection in Appalachia. To them, school (and pretty much everything else) sucks. But what can you expect when you're the only punks in town? When the brothers start their own band, their lives begin to change: they meet friends, attract girls, and finally get invited to join a national tour and escape their rat box little town. But their plans are cut short when Rob is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that has already progressed to an advanced stage. Not only are his dreams of punk rock stardom completely shredded, there is a very real threat that this is one battle that can't be won. While Rob suffers through nightmarish treatments and debilitating surgery, Nat continues on their band's road to success alone. But as Rob's life diverges from his brother's, he learns to find strength with himself and through his music..."--Book jacket
