"A fascinating and stunning novel from Pete Wentz, the founder and bassist of punk sensation Fall Out Boy--that reveals the dark side of rock-and-roll.Winner of multiple MTV Awards and on People magazine's Most Beautiful list, Pete Wentz and his band Fall Out Boy have come a long way since their early days playing small venues outside of Chicago. But the rise to fame is not always smooth and glamorous, and Rainy Day Kids reveals the rocky road to stardom, including the extreme highs and lows along the way. Based heavily on Pete Wentz's own tumultuous life, Rainy Day Kids is about a singer named Pete. Pete is touring with a band, struggling to understand who he is, where he's been, and what he's become. He vacillates between the highs of being recognizedas an international sex symbol and the aching hopelessness he feels when he is alone. After the death of his longtime ex-girlfriend, Pete grieves deeply and soon embarks on a path of self-destruction, including an attempt to take his ow "Sometimes, late at night in the hotel room, after the lights have gone out and the mistakes have already been made, when it is heavy and silent and still, I lie awake and listen to my pulse on the pillow..." Imagine you are on a tour bus, the miles whistling away beneath you as you sleep. Tomorrow you will wake up in downtown Somewhere. It doesn't matter. All the skylines look the same. Time is only marked by events. The world is on a first-name basis with you. But you...you barely even know yourself. There are those who give in completely to the idea of what it means to be famous. And those who can't ever seem to leave the past behind. Life is a deep and contemplative story stuck on repeat--love, loss, self-destruction, self-discovery. If you could go back to the way things were before you made it...would everything still be gray?
