Ever since Oscar's mother died, he's been disrespected by his father and bullied by his self-absorbed brother, so he withdraws from his fractured family, seeking refuge in his art. Vance wishes his younger brother would just loosen up and be cool. At least when Vance pushes himself in lacrosse and parties, he feels alive. But when their father's alcoholism sends him into liver failure, the two brothers must come face-to-face with their demons --- and each other --- if they are going to survive a very uncertain future.

A soaring melody, a pulse-pounding beat, a touching lyric: Music takes a moment and makes it a memory. It's a universal language that can capture love, heartbreak, loss, soul searching, and wing spreading-all in the span of a few notes. In BEHIND THE SONG, 14 acclaimed young adult authors and musicians share short stories and personal essays inspired by the songs, the albums, the musicians who move them.
