"Playing and touring demand creativity and commitment, forcing the Scar Boys -- actually three guys and a girl -- to come of age in this wry, stylish tale." --The New York Times

"Harry's obsession with punk music will appeal to music lovers, while his journey to accept himself for who he is--scarred face and all--is one that will likely resonate with any teen trying to find his way in the world." --Booklist

"Harry's trajectory loosely mirrors Vlahos's time as the guitarist for a touring punk/pop band, so details like how to cut a record, land a gig at the now-defunct club CBGB...or rework a tour when the van breaks down strongly resonate." --Publishers Weekly

"Etches its way onto the heart and leaves a mark." --Kirkus Reviews
