Are you Born to Rock?

Gordon Korman, author of the hilarious books Son of the Mob and No More Dead Dogs produces yet another side-splitting novel. Born to Rock is the story of a smart boy named Leo. Leo is a founding member of his school's Young Republicans and has been accepted to Harvard with a full scholarship. Leo is accused of cheating on a test and loses his scholarship.

At the same time, his best friend punk rock Melinda tells him all about the reunion of the famous punk band Purge. Purge was considered the rudest band ever during their time and now the middle aged rockers are making a comeback. Leo stumbles on his birth certificate which brings up some questions. Leo discovers that his birth dad is none other than Purge's front man, King Maggot!

Leo finds King Maggot and shares his new-found secret with him. King asks Leo to go on the reunion tour with him as an attempt to get to know each other. Leo looks at this opportunity as a chance to pay for his college.

Watch Leo as he tries to make his own place in the punk rock world among roadies, groupies, poodles, and aging rockers!
