Young Clayton Byrd loves nothing more than hanging out with his grandfather, Cool Papa Byrd, and the band of Bluesmen. Though he’s occasionally invited to play his blues harp with them, Clayton longs for the day he gets a twelve-bar solo all to himself. But then the unimaginable happens and his grandfather passes away. Clayton is lost without Cool Papa Byrd, and his mother has forbidden him from the one thing that could help with his grief -- playing the Blues.

Clayton is determined to play, though. Armed with his grandfather’s brown porkpie hat and harmonica, Clayton runs away from home, hoping he can find the Bluesmen and join up with them on the road. Your young readers will love this tale of music and loss as Clayton travels the New York City subways and discovers what it means to be a true Bluesman. Ages 10 and up. 176pp. Signed by Newbery Honor author, Rita Williams-Garcia.
