Synopsis: Music is in Sammy’s blood. His grandfather was a jazz musician, and Sammy’s indie rock band could be huge one day—if they don’t self-destruct first. Winning the upcoming Battle of the Bands would justify all the band’s compromises and reassure Sammy that his life’s dream could become a reality. But practices are hard to schedule when Sammy’s grandfather is sick and getting worse, his mother is too busy to help either of them, and his best friend may want to be his girlfriend.
When everything in Sammy’s life seems to be headed for major catastrophe, will his music be enough to keep him together?

This book was just amazing. Loved it! One of the best books I've read in a while. Most books are the usual teen issues. No one really focuses on anything but their school life and their core family. This book showed us how much the main character respects his grandfather, because he was a working musician. It also showed, being in a band isnt all that fabulous. Especially when you have a lead man who jsut ruins everything. Oh and the benefits of having a girl for a best friend. This book really stirred some things in me because I just sat there ticking off a list of things I can relate to. Great book.
