Five Flavors of Dumb

ebook
Winner of the Schneider Book Award
The award-winning author of the Elemental series delivers a rock-and-roll novel that Lauren Myracle called "raw, fresh, funny, and authentic."

The Challenge: Eighteen-year-old Piper has one month to get her high school's coolest rock band Dumb a paying gig.
The Deal: If she does it, Piper will become the band's manager and get her share of the profits.
The Catch: How can Piper possibly manage a band made up of an egomaniacal pretty boy, a talentless piece of eye candy, a silent rocker, an angry girl, and a crush-worthy nerd boy? And how can she do it when she's deaf?
Piper is determined to show her classmates that just because she's hearing impaired doesn't mean she's invisible. With growing self-confidence, a budding romance, and a new understanding of her parent's decision to buy a cochlear implant for her deaf baby sister, she discovers her own inner rock star and what it truly means to be a flavor of Dumb.
For fans of K. L. Going's Fat Kid Rules the World and Catherine Gilbert Murdock's Dairy Queen.
