Beat the Band

G/A Calame, Don. Beat the Band. Candlewick, 2010. 400p. 978-0763646332. 16.99.

It’s sophomore year for the boys from Swim the Fly and this time their antics are being narrated by Coop. The boys are all assigned partners in their health class and Coop gets paired with the worst possible girl in class, Helen. To try to save his social status he enters the trio into the battle of the bands, even though none of them really know how to play any instruments. Just like in the first book, hilarity ensues. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve.
