Several friends, led by the purple-haired Vita, try to figure out how to make their band work despite the

fact that no one knows how to play anything. But when Vita, whose older brother is a cancer researcher,

learns that band-member Tanya has leukemia, she begins to wonder how their upcoming performance

might be put to a greater good. Emerson's graphic novel (developed with Peter Reynolds' FableVision

media company) succeeds on several levels: the characters are credibly diverse in personality and

appearance, and their individual stories are carefully twisted into a full and complex story arc.

Additionally, information about leukemia's physical toll on a young patient and research methods to

combat it are integrated cleanly and without didacticism. Full-color panels vary in size and shape, with

scenes moving from the stage to a soda shop to the back corridors of the hospital. Gentler and for a

younger crowd than Judd Winick's Pedro and Me (2000), this bouncy cartoon story nonetheless mines

equally serious territory, and stands a good chance of finding wide popularity to boot.
