Sonnenblick. That’s a cool name. It sounds good rolling around in my brain.

Know what else is a cool name? This book (and series, of course!) title: Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie. How the hell can pie be dangerous? I suppose if you eat too much of it…

Here’s the description:

From first-time novelist Jordan Sonnenblick, a brave and beautiful story that will make readers laugh and break their hearts at the same time.

Thirteen-year-old Steven has a totally normal life: he plays drums in the All-Star Jazz band, has a crush on the hottest girl in the school, and is constantly annoyed by his five-year-old brother, Jeffrey. But when Jeffrey is diagnosed with leukemia, Steven’s world is turned upside down. He is forced to deal with his brother’s illness and his parents’ attempts to keep the family in one piece. Salted with humor and peppered with devastating realities, DRUMS, GIRLS, AND DANGEROUS PIE is a heartwarming journey through a year in the life of a family in crisis.

So… maybe this isn’t Rock Fiction. It’s definitely YA, which is sorta nice to see since we run into so much Rock Fiction romance.

I’m curious where the rest of this series could be headed. Will it stay focused on Steven? What will happen to him? What can happen that can be more compelling than a potentially dying little brother?

As always, inquiring minds… and this mind wants to know how much Rock Fiction there is, or if all these drums are merely to catch my attention.
