HOW TO CURE THE BROKENHEARTED, STOLEN BASS BLUES
Toby and Zack's first gig could make or break their Beatles cover band, the Nowhere Men. But ever since getting dumped by his girlfriend, lead singer Toby can't quite pull off the Beatles' feel-good vibe. When Toby finds a note hidden inside his brother's bass claiming the instrument was stolen, he embarks on a quest to find the true owner--and hopes a girl named Michelle will help him recover his lost mojo along the way.
Praise: "Fast-paced, with authentic characters (the chemistry between Toby and Michelle is particularly satisfying) and a general air of good-natured fun, Briant's story rings true and doesn't disappoint."--Publisher's Weekly
"Briant has an ear for smart-aleck teen talk and keeps the first-person narration crisp. A light and entertaining rock-'n'-roll romp."--Kirkus Reviews
