6 posts | 7 read | 7 to read
Find the confidence to rock out to your own beat in this big-hearted novel perfect for fans of Gracefully Grayson and Better Nate than Never. Melly only joined the school band because her best friend, Olivia, begged her to. But to her surprise, quiet Melly loves playing the drums. It’s the only time in her life she doesn’t feel like a mouse. Now she and Olivia are about to spend the next two weeks at Camp Rockaway, jamming under the stars in the Michigan woods. But this summer brings big changes for Melly: her parents split up, her best friend ditches her, and Melly finds herself falling for a girl at camp named Adeline. To top it off, Melly’s not sure she has what it takes to be a real rock n’ roll drummer. Will she be able to make music from all the noise in her heart?

Drummer Melly is excited to go to music camp with her outgoing BFF Olivia— until her parents announce their divorce just days before camp. And Olivia‘s interest in a boy pushes Melly out of the way even as Melly‘s friendship with a new girl seems to be blossoming into something more. There‘s a lot going on here mixed in with music and bad puns, but it‘s handled very well. This delightful #middlegrade #summerread comes out Tuesday. #lgbt #kidlit

In relation to my previous post, my personal photo challenge for June is @TK-421 's #quotsyjune18! I think I'm going to be relying on Goodreads a lot for this one.

TK-421 Yay! Can't wait to see your posts 😊 Goodreads, Google Books preview, and searchable e-books are a lifesaver when memory fails or when you don't have time to scour every page of a 500+ page book looking for a half-remembered quote! 13mo

Loved this book. Lots of fun - quick and entertaining with a genuine voice. It felt like it must have been fun to write. She really got into the psyche of middle school kids. I found the language and dialogue convincing. I remembered some of the drama from when I was in middle school. It made me reminiscent for these years and relieved that I was not in the midst of them. The exploration of relationships was innocent with starry-eyed realism.
