Back to music, what are songs anyway? They’re crappy little stories. And there are two kinds: the whiny confession. Which suck. And the fictional story. Which suck. All this strumming and singing is a waste. I’m tired of wasting time. I don’t want to tell anybody anything about me. That’s stupid. I don’t want to invent some story. I don’t want to be entertaining. That’s stupid.

I have to do something. Wake up, Martin. Go start something. Go!
If you want to rock, you come out swinging. Well, Martin Henry just made a fist.

Challenged by a teacher to actually “do” something, Martin walks a minefield of idiot friends, an unfathomable Dream Girl, high school, and relative pennilessness to prove that he can change the world.

The funny thing about change, it screws up everything.


About Timothy Decker

See more books from this Author
The celebrated life of Timothy Decker is a story known by all of us, but how much do we really know about this renowned writer and illustrator? It seems that even the most talented and scrupulous scholars barely scratch the surface of Timothy Decker’s sublime genius. Certainly, his artistic achievements are well established, author/illustrator of The Letter Home, Run Far, Run Fast and For Liberty: The Story of The Boston Massacre, but has anyone discussed his contributions to say, the sciences of paleohydrogeology and geomorphology? His discovery of the darktron? Or the time Timothy Decker saved the Earth by using a single kumquat? So many unaccounted adventures… alas. Welcome into the world of one of the greatest minds humanity ever produced.
