Pete's musical genius is his refuge when life with his bullying father and alcoholic mother gets too much. But his gift has a flipside that can send him crashing from euphoric highs to the darkest of depressions. Terry Barrow provides the lyrics to Pete's tunes. And he helps Pete fight the lows.

And Terry wonders if, this time, he'll be able to save his best friend from the demon that's always been lurking in the shadows-that low too deep to escape.
