Today I'm over at my group blog, From the Mixed-Up Files of Middle-Grade Authors, with an interview and giveaway. Andrea Pyros has just kicked off the blog tour for her new book, My Year of Epic Rock, and I'm thrilled to have been a part of it! If you have a middle-grade reader with food allergies, or know someone that does, then you'll definitely want a copy of her book!! What are you waiting for? Hope on over to MUF now and enter that contest!
If Life Was Like a Song
Nina Simmons’ song would be “You Can’t Always Eat What You Want.” (Peanut allergies, ugh). But that’s okay, because as her best friend Brianna always said, “We’re All in This Together.”
Until the first day of the seventh grade, when Brianna dumps her to be BFFs with the popular new girl. Left all alone, Nina is forced to socialize with “her own kind”–banished to the peanut-free table with the other allergy outcasts. As a joke, she tells her new pals they should form a rock band called EpiPens. (Get it?) Apparently, allergy sufferers don’t understand sarcasm, because the next thing Nina knows she’s the lead drummer.
Now Nina has to decide: adopt a picture-perfect pop personality to fit in with Bri and her new BFF or embrace her inner rocker and the spotlight. Well…
Call Me a Rock Star, Maybe.
