Leo is a high school senior, a Young Republican, and on his way to Harvard. He gets a bogus rap for cheating on a test and loses his scholarship, which means he can't go to Harvard anymore without miraculously coming up with $40,000. By a divine intervention of fate, he finds out his real father is a punk rocker from the 80's who is going on a reunion tour this summer. Leo sees his opportunity to squeeze the $40K from his long-last dad, but he has to go on tour and get to know his new father first.

I thought this was pretty entertaining. As one might expect, straight-laced Leo has a little bit of trouble fitting in on a punk rock tour. The reader was pretty good too, I especially liked his "King Maggot" voice (that's Leo's real dad). It was a pretty short listen (5 CD's) and good for teen boys or girls.
