Caleb Clifford has earbuds, not real buds. And he prefers it that way.

1. They always give him what he wants to hear.

2. He can adjust the volume.

3. If things get tangled, it's relatively easy to straighten them out again ...

Sixteen-year-old songwriter and aspiring social outcast Caleb Clifford fills his world with music, but - like most things - keeps his songs to himself. That is until his little brother leaks Caleb's most personal track online; a track that's quite obviously about his secret crush. Having his innermost feelings (accompanied by a funky bassline) go viral is not Caleb's idea of a good time. But is this the end of everything, or the start?

A hilarious and touching coming-of-age debut novel from ARIA award-winning triple j host Alex Dyson about family, friends, fame, and the importance of never leaving your computer unattended.

After graduating from the University of Melbourne with a Creative Writing degree, Alex Dyson became a co-host of the national triple j breakfast show when he was just twenty-one years old. In his seven years there he woke up with approximately one million listeners every morning, and has interviewed everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Julia Gillard, as well as almost every up-and-coming musician the country has to offer. Since leaving radio, he has DJ-ed at clubs and music festivals around Australia, hosted MTV Unplugged, opened a bar, run for parliament, and has now dusted off his writing degree to release his debut young adult novel, When It Drops, in May 2020.
