Review : My Year Of Epic Rock

My Year of Epic Rock
Andrea Pyros
Sourcebook Jabberwocky

From Goodreads: 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.
My Review : I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book in exchange for my honest review.

       I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun and fast read. Nina's world just fell apart, her bff for her entire life just deserted her. Too a twelve year old that is the end of the world. Nina handles it well and her growth in this book is wonderfully entailed in this story of staying strong and empowering through tough time even when someone so young. This is a great book for the younger group and young at heart.
