It is the summer of 1967 and, with one more year of high school to go, Leo Suther still has a lot to learn. He's in love with Allie Donovan, the beautiful girl who has turned his head ever since she moved to his small Massachusetts town. And he feels a real draw to the blues his father has taught him. Leo soon finds himself in the middle of a consuming love affair - and an intense testing of his political values by Allie's father, who challenges him on the escalating Vietnam conflict and forces him to examine just where he stands in relation to the people in his life. Throughout his - and the nation's - unforgettable 'summer of love', Leo is learning the language of the blues, which seem to echo the mourning he feels for his dead mother, his occasionally distant father, and the youth that is fast giving way to manhood.It sniffed the air, twitched its tail, then turned and skittered up the trunk until Leo couldna#39;t see it anymore. ... a€œHowa#39;s grilled steaks sound? ... Ryder clinked cans with Leo and took a long pull, his Adama#39;s apple making three trips back and forth. .... Leo patted the harmonicas at his chest, then he opened Jima#39;s present and pulled out a Delta circular saw, a short paint-splattered power cord hanging from it.
