BOOK HOARDER’S SELECTION, is a feature of Reading In Winter, which will feature one book from my collection that I plan to read in the coming week. These are NOT review books, but books I’ve purchased or have been gifted, which have been neglected for a long time.
TITLE: Five Flavors of Dumb
AUTHOR: Antony John
HOW LONG I’VE HAD IT: Since January 2012.
WHY I’M READING IT: Oh goodness, another book from 2012 AND another one I’d won but never got around to reading. I’m not sure why, since this one has to do with music — something I love in books. I’ve also seen some really good reviews not only for this book but also for Antony’s writing — I can’t wait to give it a try!
The Challenge: Piper has one month to get the rock band Dumb a paying gig.
The Deal: If she does it, Piper will become the band’s manager and get her share of the profits.
The Catch: How can Piper possibly manage one egomaniacal pretty boy, one talentless piece of eye candy, one crush, one silent rocker, and one angry girl? And how can she do it when she’s deaf?
Piper can’t hear Dumb’s music, but with growing self-confidence, a budding romance, and a new understanding of the decision her family made to buy a cochlear implant for her deaf baby sister, she discovers her own inner rock star and what it truly means to be a flavor of Dumb.
