At a grateful dead concert you need:
Acid: two windowpanes taped to chest
Tape deck for recording shows
Wad of cash
PB&J sandwiches for the munchies
Tickets to the show
Scotty Loveletter is in big trouble. He's about to be expelled from school, but all he cares about is getting to Freedom to see Jerry Garcia—even though he doesn't have tickets. But if dedicating his life to Jerryism has taught him anything, Scotty knows he's got to keep on trucking and smile, smile, smile.
In a stunning debut novel, J. T. Dutton crafts a brilliant story about an unforgettable teen finding himself in the music of one of the world's most beloved bands.

J. T. Dutton is the author of Freaked, her debut novel. She was born in Connecticut, attended Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York, and afterward spent time in Portland, Maine, and New York City before moving to Alaska to attend the University of Alaska Fairbanks MFA program. Her interests include backpacking, horseback riding, and yoga. She lives in eastern Ohio with her husband, her two children, and her cat.From Publishers Weekly:
It's 1993, and there's a lot going wrong in Scotty Loveletter's life. His goldfish has died, his well-known sex-therapist mother is considering posing for Playboy, his stepfather is getting ready to fly the coop and he's stuck at a "last-resort" boarding school. Scotty's one consolation (besides copious amounts of drugs): the music of his idols, Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead. "I have lived my life according to all the rules of Jerryism. I have shared my women (if my mother counts) and I have shared my wine (sometimes out the car window or all over my shirt and shoes)." When his drug-dealing roommate whisks him and a "townie" classmate away to attend Jerry's Freedom Concert on Long Island, Scotty has little idea of the adventures that are in store, which include being ditched at Grand Central Terminal and getting into the concert without a ticket. Dutton's debut will appeal most to readers who share Scotty's taste in music and recreation. Others may find the rambling narrative, 1990s setting and references, and over-the-top antics hard to get into. Ages 14-up.
