Live Born to Rock Booktalk
(Booktalk by Shaupt)
Leo Caraway has always played fair. He’s a squared-away straight-arrow high-achieving president of the High School Republicans Club. But senior year all that is blown away. First, Leo is falsely accused of cheating and loses his full scholarship to Harvard. Then he discovers that his long-lost bio-dad is actually King Maggot, punk-rock star and millionaire.
Could the solution to his college problem be his long-lost father? Would a wild-living, hard-rocking musician step up and pay for Leo’s tuition? Leo will have to spend the summer touring with his new-found father to find out.
For just about any other teenager, spending the summer on tour with a famous rock-and-roll band would be a dream come true. For Leo Caraway, it’s a nightmare! For the reader it’s a riot. Don’t miss: Born to Rock by Gordon Korman.
