Fifteen-year-old William Miller is a smart but awkward boy with a deep and abiding interest in music. Eager to get away from the classroom he loathes so much and embark upon his career as soon as he can, he is able to finagle a gig as an immersion journalist touring with and writing about a popular band called Stillwater for "Rolling Stone." His editor does not know that he is only 15, and William intends to keep it that way. He tags along and sends occasional updates but mostly embraces the opportunity to surround himself with a seemingly glamorous lifestyle that isn't all it's cracked up to be, falling in love in the process. Meanwhile, his overprotective mother back home worries continually about his welfare.
