Book Rave Contender 2012: Five Flavors of Dumb

There are quite a few teen novels with rock  n’ roll protagonists – does Five Flavors of Dumb stand out from the pack?

The Blurb:

Piper is a seventeen-year-old high school senior, and she’s just been challenged to get her school’s super-popular rock band, Dumb, a paying gig. The catch? Piper is deaf. Can she manage a band with five wildly different musicians, nurture a budding romance, and discover her own inner rock star, though she can’t hear Dumb’s music?
