For What It’s Worth is the tenth book for children by Janet Tashjian. It is a young adult novel published by Henry Holt and Company. The title is taken from the 1967 Buffalo Springfield song of the same name.

Quinn is a 14-year-old boy growing up in Laurel Canyon in 1971, the center of the Southern California music scene. He starts a band, finally gets a girlfriend, and continues to add to his record collection until he meets a draft dodger and his perfect world falls apart. Through his Ouija board, he contacts Club 27 – the spirits of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison. The rock icons give him bad advice Quinn struggles to understand.
