Life is a steady but challenging routine of band practices, football games, and homework for the members of Darcy Highas Mighty Eagle Marching Band until a disaster catalyzes drastic changes in how their monotonous world is viewed. Thomas, the marching bandas Head Drum Major, leads with stoical detachment while Michael, an avid percussionist, moonlights as the drummer in a Christian metal band and bassist in a rock cover group. Together they ride out their final year alongside their friends, the bandas resident anarchist, the poetic and overachieving Indian, one of the best mallet players in Texas, and a mysterious admirer who only communicates through text messages. The group, affectionately dubbed the Brain Trust, supports its members through struggles, successes, and heartbreaks and serves as a forum to discuss the ideas that every teenager wrestles with: love, morality, sex, family, God, college, art, and what it means to care about those you never agree with.aHowa#39;re you feeling? ... How can such a tiny cube of blue dust hide in a room of browns and decaying fruit matter? ... But wea#39;re terribly boring teenagers, so as soon as Michael showed up at the door, we went straight to the pool room. ... His eyes widened as I placed a four pack of Java Monster on the table, his favorite energy drink specially engineered to kill you slowly and keep you awake for the ride.
