520    Seventeen-year-old Blade endeavors to resolve painful 
       issues from his past and navigate the challenges of his 
       former rockstar father's addictions, scathing tabloid 
       rumors, and a protected secret that threatens his own 
520    Solo tells the story of seventeen-year-old Blade Morrison,
       who knows the life of a rock star isn’t really about the 
       glitz and glamour. All the new cars and money in the world
       can’t make up for the scathing tabloid covers or the fact 
       that his father is struggling with just about every 
       addiction under the sun—including a desperate desire to 
       make a comeback and regain his former fame. Haunted by 
       memories of his mother—who died when Blade was nine—and 
       the ruin his father’s washed-up legacy and life have 
       brought to the family, Blade is left to figure out life on
       his own. But, he’s not all alone: He’s got the friendship 
       of a jazz-musician mentor, Robert; the secret love of a 
       girlfriend, Chapel; and his music. All may not be well in 
       the Morrison home, but things are looking up for Blade, 
       until he discovers a deeply protected family secret—one 
       that further threatens his relationship with his family 
       and has him questioning his own identity. Thrown into a 
       tailspin, Blade decides the only way he will understand 
       his past and begin his future is to find out the truth 
       behind the music and himself. He soon sets out on a 
       journey that will change everything he thought to be true.
       His quest lands him in Ghana, stuck in a village just shy 
       of where answers to the secret can be found. There, Blade 
       discovers a friendship he couldn’t have imagined, a people
       founded in family and community, and a reconciliation he 
       never expected.
