Publisher's Summary

Danny Goldstein has always lived in the shadow of his identical twin brother Sam. But when a hurricane of events forces him into the spotlight, he starts to realize that the only thing he's truly afraid of is himself. With the help of his costume-changing friend, Cher, a famous gay uncle with a mysterious past of his own; two aging punk rocker parents; and Rusty, the boy who'll become his something to live for, Danny begins to realize that the music of the heart is truly the soundtrack for living.

Amazing book :)

I loved this book. I loved the relationship between Danny and every other character, and how those relationships help him find himself. I am a mother of twins and I see the close relationship talked about in this book everyday with them. And I know how one would be just as lost without the other. This is an amazing read and listen. I highly recommend it.

Very pleasant to listen to. The change in voices from character to character is more subtle than distinctive.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. It's the only book I've listened to twice in a row.
