Len Vlahos Rocks the Young Adult Fiction Stage with Scar Girl, the Gripping Sequel to Morris Award Finalist The Scar Boys

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Len
Vlahos
follows up his Morris Award Finalist The
Scar Boys
with Scar
Girl
, published by Carolrhoda
Lab™
, an imprint of Carolrhoda Books, a division of Lerner
Publishing Group
. In this gripping sequel, the members of the Scar
Boys band take a bumpy, unforgettable ride to fame.

Cheyenne, Harry, and Richie tell their own stories as they discover the
ups and downs of being rock musicians—including meltdowns on stage, too
much drinking, keeping secrets that should be shared, and fighting that
test the limits of their friendship. The band’s reputation grows and
grows, but will the kids themselves survive?

With the same wry and compelling picture of relationships and growth as The
Scar Boys
, Scar
Girl
will hook readers from start to finish.
