Blast From the Past



I was just listening to "Adam Raised of Cain" by the Boss and I was reminded of this book I read in elementary school. I found a copy on Amazon and I think it just might be worth the 3 dollars.

The plot is basically this prepubescent boy, in a single parent home, dealing with all of his issues by writing fan letters about them to Bruce Springsteen. I can't remember if the Boss ever writes back or if the kid ever even sends the letters. I just had a vision of Bruce, dictating a response to Max Weinberg, who is furiously typing in shorthand.
