In August 1965, the Beatles iconic “Help!” album was released. Forty-seven years later, today’s teens still know every Beatles’ song by heart. Novelist Ed Briant captures modern Beatles’ love and lore in his new book, I Am (Not) The Walrus, about a Beatles-cover band whose teenage bassist thinks his Fender guitar may have once belonged to George Harrison. Following the clues left in a note hidden in the bass leads Toby to some scary places—and a girl named Michelle (of course). Will he discover the truth before his band plays its first gig?
