"In this "intimate yet wonderfully open rock 'n' roll love story" (Publishers Weekly), 16-year-old drummer Kid, who, according to Kid's father, "doesn't know whether to be straight or gay or a girl or a boy or what," finds love, tragedy, and music on the streets of Brooklyn. After being kicked out by judgmental parents, Kid lived for a while with an older junkie named Felix - but Felix is gone now, and Kid is alone again. Until Scout moves to town... Told in a style that allows the author to keep the main characters' genders ambiguous, Brooklyn, Burning is a "moving, personal story of friendship, loss, and love" (Horn Book)."
