Description

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.

Reviews



“A perfect read for anyone who feels BFF-challenged, and the food allergy aspect may attract kids who have such issues...the band rocks out at the end, but that’s just the icing Nina’s ability to finally stand up to the girl she always thought was her friend is the cake” - Booklist

My Year of Epic Rock was an adorable book from start to finish... I loved following Nina through her ups and downs and feel like this would be a great read for anyone ages 11 and up.” - The Sarcastic Palm Tree

“A great clean book for tweens and young teens with a sweet kiss at the very end. My Year of Epic Rock is a sure-fire hit!” - Picture Books to YA (And everything in be “tween”)

“This book totally rocked...I loved the fact that Nina is a drummer! Parents: this is a nice clean read that should appeal to the whole family. ” - Book Hounds

“Nina is brave and at times, pragmatic, and recognizes she deserves to be treated better. With food allergies becoming commonplace for many kids, Nina’s struggles will hit the right note with readers...Nina is a likable character and her story feels authentic A charming addition to upper elementary and middle school collections” - School Library Journal

“A good choice for younger readers...valuable for its portrayal of a young person living with serious food allergies. ” - Kirkus
