Burning Brooklyn by Steve Brezenoff
September 2011 (but available from Amazon & B&N)

When you’re sixteen and no one understands who you are, sometimes the only choice left is to run. If you’re lucky, you find a place that accepts you, no questions asked. And if you’re really lucky, that place has a drum set, a place to practice, and a place to sleep. For Kid, the streets of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, are that place. Over the course of two scorching summers, Kid falls hopelessly in love and then loses nearly everything and everyone worth caring about. But as summer draws to a close, Kid finally finds someone who can last beyond the sunset.

Formula for success: love, music, summers. Burning Brooklyn sounds absolutely beautiful, and following someone named Kid is bound to be interesting. ♥

And after the summary's specificity, I had to search up Greenpoint, Brooklyn:
