Fiction. Eddie Kane the twelve-year-old terror of the five-string banjo, comes from two powerful traditions--on his father's side, baseball; and on his mother's, music. His natural talent for the banjo threatens to eclipse his dreams of following his father's footsteps and playing baseball. When he joins his uncles' band, he embarks upon a journey of discovery about self, family, and the wide world beyond. Along the way, he gets his first glimpses of Elvis, rock-and-roll, and racism. He begins to see that the world is much bigger than his childhood home of Sand Mountain, more exciting and terrifying, and full of surprises. The transforming power of music sustains him on this lively quest for adulthood.--Lee Smith.
