Holly Mead isn’t having the day she thought she’d have on her
first day of seventh grade. After her pesky brother ruins her perfect
back-to-school outfit, they’re almost late for school! Good thing she’s got
band class to turn her day right side up—that is until she learns of the new
director’s rules. Holly has always adored band, but now she’s nervous it is
going to turn into something she loathes instead of loves. So she seeks out her
BFF Julia for help. Only problem? Well, Julia has found herself a new bestie,

Read on as Holly must learn to be able to balance her love
for band with her schoolwork, friends and keeping with the new rules. Is there

Julia leaves her for a new pack of pals.
In this hilarious and heartwarming story about the life of a
