In The Key Of Dale

Part comedy, part grief narrative, In
the Key of Dale is a disarming coming-of-age novel about a queer teen music
prodigy who discovers pieces of himself in places he never thought to look.



Sixteen-year-old Dale Cardigan is a loner
who's managed to make himself completely invisible at his all-boys high school.
He doesn't fit with his classmates (whom he mentally renames), his stepbrother
(whom nobody at school knows he's related to), or even his mother (who never
quite sees how gifted a musician Dale he might be), but they don't fit with him,
either. And he's fine with that. To him, high school and home life are stages to
endure until his real life can finally begin.




Somewhat against his will, he befriends one
classmate, Rusty, who gets a rare look at Dale's complex life outside school--but
their friendship is made awkward when it seems his growing attraction to Rusty is
doomed to remain one-sided. Still, it's to Rusty that Dale turns when he
stumbles upon a family secret.




An epistolary novel written in the form of
letters to his late father, In the Key of Dale is a beguiling,
pitch-perfect book about growing up, fitting in, and finding a way out of grief
and loneliness toward the melodic light of adulthood.





Ages 12 and up.
