Kallie Echo is starting to think dreams are dangerous. Her dad had one—to be a rock star—and then he died. Now Kallie is practically homeless and her life is falling apart. So when a punk band asks Kallie to sing for them, she must decide if she's got the heart to front a band of rocker chicks (and one trans guy). Can she find a new purpose in punk? And will the drummer with the amazing smile break her heart?

The band goes on tour, and everything hinges on Kallie. It's a lot of pressure—especially when you throw in substance abuse and Kallie's deadbeat mom showing up at the worst time. Kallie must learn to trust her friends, and herself, if she's going to get over the past and make a new future. But if she dares to dream again, will she lose it all?
CM Magazine - June 10, 2016
"Carter's novel is a quick paced read that packs a lot of action into its 127-pages...The novel is able to knit together weighty themes including transgender issues, dealing with death, finding love and substance abuse. Specifically, Carter's presentation of transgender issues and how someone might experience them in a real life are believable and may help readers understand these realities more deeply...Recommended."
