Growing up can be tough! Especially with a punk-rock radio host for a mom. And without a dad around. Layla wants to fit in, but she's part Egytian. She looks like a father she hasn't met. She wonders how her life would be different if her mother hosted a show for NPR instead of their community radio station. Layla never knows what her mom will say on the air. She'll talk about her period, strange dates, weird people at bowling alleys, anything. Everyday she worries her mom will talk about her acne or something else way too personal. A New Kind of Music looks at fitting in, finding out how families can be different and still work, and about fitting in with the community. Service is a big part of Layla's life, along with her music. It's making everything work together that causes problems.
