The Battle Hymn Blues
by Baker Lawley
Stoney Nix is a musical prodigy, but he's stuck in Pinewood, Alabama, his dying hometown obsessed with its Civil War reenactment. But Sadie Green, the beautiful new girl (and Stoney's major crush), convinces him to fight in the fake battle, to make fun of it. What happens there will haunt Stoney forever. Only through voices of the past, his friends, and music, will Stoney find himself again.
