Mr. Alexander does it again, with help from Ms. Hess; I truly love the books this man creates. Blade is the son of an aging rock star who reacted to the death of Blade's mom with an everlasting and highly dysfunctional descent into addiction and absentee parenting. As the story unfolds, Blade deals with his high school graduation, his father's inability to stay sober, his sister's delusions of grandeur, a  broken heart, and a recent revelation he is adopted, by escaping to Ghana to find the birth mother he didn't even know he missed. This is a terrific tale of music, maturing, love, adoption, and finding your way, told in Mr. Alexander's usual sparse, but effecting poetic style (with an added bonus of a great soundtrack list).
