Synopsis

“Will keep readers turning pages deep into the night.”—The Bulletin “Poetic, wild language, as enigmatic and forceful as rock lyrics.”—Booklist Relly’s band is called Scorpio Bone. Screaming guitars, crusher drums, and a singer who looks like a golden god. Along comes a girl named Zee, with a bass guitar, a notebook full of strange lyrics, and exactly the right attitude.
Zee joins Relly’s band, and immediately their sound is unbelievable; it’s like silence screaming. As the band bonds together, inexplicable things start happening and Zee begins to learn her true role in the group. She finds she is the last piece in a tetrad that, once formed, gives the group supernatural powers—each teen in the group represents one of the four elements: earth, air, water, and fire. At their first gig, she realizes that music isn’t all there is to Scorpio Bone . . .
