Eric | 12 comments I read this book around 2005-2006 when I was in elementary school.

I don't remember a lot of romance, but I think the protagonist is a girl who comes across a boy that plays guitar. They are likely 10-12 years old. We learn that the boy ran away, and I think he runs away at the end of the novel. It's set in southern part of the USA. I don't remember the time period it's set in. I feel like it could be the 50s to early 2000s.

The main thing I remember is the cover. It features the boy singing on a porch playing the guitar. The art style isn't realistic. The boy's head is huge compared to his body size, and his mouth is opened wide. My younger self thought the boy looked like Elvis with his hair style.

The book was probably written in the 90s. I'm guessing the page length is around 200.
