Read full description of the books:
A teenage drummer finds out what life is really like on tour with a rock band in this funny and bittersweet YA novel. For anyone who loved Almost Famous or This Is Spinal Tap.
After being dropped from one band, sixteen-year-old drummer Zach gets a chance to go on tour with a much better band. It feels like sweet redemption, but this is one rocky road trip—filled with jealousy, rivalries, and on-stage meltdowns.
Mark Parsons has written a fast-paced, feel-good novel about a boy finding his place in the world, in a band, and in the music. Zach is a character teens will stand up and cheer for as he lands the perfect gig, and the perfect girl.
“A must-read for young garage-band types.” —Booklist
“Readers and especially musicians should enjoy debut novelist Parsons’s look at a band on the run.” —Publishers Weekly
“A road-trip adventure in romance and friendship that is ultimately all about the music.” —Kirkus Reviews

Read information about the authorMark Parsons’ YA novel, ROAD RASH (Knopf/Random House) is a band-on-the-road novel which explores coming into adulthood. It was named to the 2015 YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults list, as well as Bank Street College’s Best Children’s Books of the Year list.
Before that Parsons wrote primarily non-fiction for several years, penning a couple hundred articles for national publications as well as a pair of non-fiction books.
“I love the writing process, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction,” Parsons says. “But with this book, I knew I wanted create a work with a young male protagonist, one who’s on his way… but maybe not quite there yet.”
Prior to becoming a full-time writer, Parsons was an instructor for a Fortune 500 corporation. He lives in California with his wife, also a children’s author. They occasionally make very loud noises in the band Risky Whippet.
Steampunk before steampunk was a thing, Parsons has an affinity for arcane machinery such as classic British single-cylinder motorcycles, antique talking machines, and turn-of-the-century large format cameras. He holds an E-ticket with Col. Jeff Cooper’s signature on it.
