Waiting on Wednesday (7)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine where we share what books we are most looking forward to.

This week my book is FINALLY not part of a series!  WooHOO!  It also comes out next month so another plus.


Five Flavors of Dumb
by: Antony John
Publication Date: Nov. 11 2010

THE CHALLENGE: Piper has one month to get a paying gig for Dumb—the hottest new rock band in school. 

THE DEAL: If she does it, she'll become manager of the band and get her share of the profits, which she desperately needs since her parents raided her college fund. 

THE CATCH: Managing one egomaniacal pretty boy, one talentless piece of eye candy, one crush, one silent rocker, and one angry girl who is ready to beat her up. And doing it all when she's deaf. With growing self-confidence, an unexpected romance, and a new understanding of her family's decision to buy a cochlear implant for her deaf baby sister, Piper just may discover her own inner rock star.





This is definitely different than what I usually read but everybody needs a break from their usual genre or else it just gets boring!  Wouldn't you agree?



What are you waiting for??  :D

Totally agree! I think sounds like a fresh and sweet read =) I love the it combines a lack of hearing and music - subverts your expectations.

I like the title and there are no creatures in this book. That's refreshing! Never heard of this one. Thanks. Oh, BTW, I love vinegar and salt potato chips and I'm definitely a cat lover!

Sounds great. I love rock books. And there aren't many books with deaf characters, even if it is a baby.
