About the Book
An accidental band. A record store. A pair of shoes and two perfect girls. This is going to be one hell of a summer. Starrphyre is your average dorky 16 - year - old, although with one difference. He has a very weird girly name, thanks to his hippy parents - a live - to - air radio sex therapist mum and a bass player dad from a tragic one - hit - wonder 80s metal band. A long hot summer stretches ahead of Starrphyre and all he wants is one date with his dream girl, Candace McAllister. But how can he get her to notice him when she's the star of every other high - school guys' fantasies? Perhaps starting a band with his video - game obsessed pals will do the trick.
