Part Breakfast Club, part music doco, part coming-of-age story about five teenagers, one emotionally and creatively charged weekend and the song that unites them, from the award-winning author of Zac & Mia.

'In a few months, the four of us will be elsewhere, doing other things and this chance we have will be long-gone. We won't get a re-do. We won't get another shot at changing the very course of our existence.' Eva writes intimate, personal songs. She wants to make it as a musician, but after three rejections from the Triple J Unearthed High competition, she is ready to give up her dreams and focus on graduating high school. Until Cooper Hunter, fellow muso and Eva's long-time crush, convinces her to try again – this time, with some help. Cue the band: mellow, metal-head drummer Ant; broody, opinionated bassist Ruby; charismatic rock guitarist Cooper and indie-folk singer-songwriter Eva. Aspiring documentary-maker Mim is in the background, filming their rehearsal. Five people who have nothing in common but music. Will it be enough?

'Moving, witting, heartbreaking and absolutely beautiful.' (on Zac & Mia)
Alice Pung, author of Unpolished Gem

'Betts offers young adult fiction at its best, successfully engaging a poetic literary aesthetic.' (on Shutterspeed)
The Australian Book Review
