hi-res WRECK cover with blurb

How do you survive high school, scholarship applications, and your dad's terminal illness? Throw your heart in the deepest, coldest lake you can find.


When you hate your little sister, but you love making art--what do you do when those two things collide?


When it's hard to be you, music is always there.
