At a young age Harry was afflicted with multiple cases of bullying but one day the neighborhood boys were playing and a particular group took a keen interest on making Harry’s life miserable. Almost like a punishment for being born, Harry gets tied to a large Oak tree in the park. Thunder clouds stir above and soon strike the tree Harry is tied to. He’s screaming for help, abandoned by everybody, he’s finally found by his mother through the pouring rain and he’s rushed to the hospital.

Waking up from several hours of surgery Harry now has to face the more than just bullies. It’s him against the world as society stares at him and his fire ravaged face. Harry became an outcast, and when the police were involved, he never told them who tied him to the tree. The boys in question knew they were in the wrong, they never looked up at the house after that day. Harry went to school, remained alone until one day he meets Jonny.

Jonny made Harry “cool”. Jonny took Harry under his wing, and brought him out from his shell. Graduating year, Jonny and Harry decide to start a band “The Scar Boys”. This is when we really start the adventure! The downfalls. The awesome times! The romances. The tragedies. Relationship fall-out, and then the getting-back-together-and-making-up part.

I really enjoyed this book, and the audio version you wind up getting a sing-song version of the final music piece from the narrator.

* Just note that there may be a slight chance that I misspelled the names of some of the characters.
