Couldn't put this book down...almost to the point of feeling ill in order to stay home sick from work to finish it.

Piper is the manager for her high school grunge band, Dumb (she wasn't around when the band named themselves, but she is pretty sure the title isn't too far off.) She has thirty days to get them a paying gig, and she will get a cut in all their future earnings, which will help with her college dreams since her parents just raided her college fund left her by her grandparents. Couple of things standing in her way....the band is horrible...the band members fight constantly...and Piper knows next to nothing about music in general, because she is moderately severe deaf. It is looking like turning Dumb into a real band might be a lost cause.
