It’s what he does best. He soon makes friends with the local misfits and troublemakers and finds himself standing on the edge of a great swelling discovery- music! We follow his exploits with school bullies, the girl from the nice end of town, and his attempts to scare boyfriends away from his beautiful single mother. However things become darker when she is swept off her feet by powerful local nightclub owner, Lee Howard. Danny finds he has met his match- Howard is a dangerous psychopath, who seems to be addicted to violence, and there are very few adults who will believe a word Danny says. The story is told from both points of view, Dannys and Howards. Who is he, and what does he ultimately want from Danny? With his own personal soundtrack in his head, Danny explores the power of music, how it gives him hope, and becomes an obsession- I was always looking for music that made me shiver. You ever felt that? You know, when the words, or the chords, or the arrangement, something, at some point in a song makes you shiver, makes a tingle run down your spine, makes your hairs stand on end. I fucking lived for that. I hunted it down. When it came it took my breath away and it felt like I was falling…I felt the music beating in my veins and I remembered that I was alive, and that this was a life. A story about music, dreams, first love, the friends who would do anything to save you, and the choice between escaping, or fighting back…
