High school seniors Tom and Dan consider themselves a "basement band," but when their school puts on a battle of the bands, they decide to rise to the challenge and invite two more students to join them. As they tentatively welcome Mark and Jacoby into the group, they get to know one another and start to see past their differences. They decide to call the band The Stereotypical Freaks because they feel that when people look at them, they see a "smart kid, geek, star athlete, and quiet weirdo." This sweet, brief graphic novel features humor, authentic dialogue, and a great, heartwarming story that touches on bullying, identity, loyalty, and friendship.
