Almost everyone past a certain age has dreamed of being the next big rock star (and those who haven’t approached that age are all probably dreaming of it now, albeit for the most part, secretly), so we can all relate to Jason Krabb: a 17-year-old kid from Idaho who wants nothing more than to shred a guitar onstage. Oh, that and a girlfriend. He really wants a girlfriend, too. Part coming-of-age novel and part 1990s America literary diorama, Pipeliner will you have you laughing as you nod your head in acknowledgment that “you’ve been there done that,” or been there and dreamed of doing that.
