Synopsis: 13-year-old Dave Levy, a talented young trumpet player, lives in suburban Chicago with his mildly dysfunctional family during the turbulent late '60s. As the story begins, Dave is entering eighth grade, though this year is destined to be unlike any other. We meet his close friends, Andy and Robert, and are amused by their witty commentaries on teachers, classmates, sex, and life, in general. But, adolescence is also a time of transformation: family life becomes more complicated, the need for independence assumes ever-greater significance, and commitment to an idea may prove as important as loyalty to a friend. And, sometimes without warning, life-altering events can shake even the most cherished beliefs about the existence of order in the universe. It is against this backdrop that Dave must confront the greatest challenge of his life: his mother's gradual descent into psychotic depression, the family upheaval that follows, and his efforts to find meaning through music and friendships.
