Lemonade Mouth, by Mark Peter Hughes

For some reason I had a hard time getting into this book- maybe the revolving narration threw me off- but once I settled in I really enjoyed the different voices, and the story seemed very real to me, maybe because I remember what a huge thing battle-of-the-bands were in high school- it all felt so exciting, and this book really brought me there. I loved all the Rhode Island flourishes- the Mel's Lemonade, etc, and think Rhody kids would get a kick out of that. I think this would be an easy 'sell' to readers. I wasn't crazy about the cover art, but LOVE the website.
