I'm so happy to be apart of the NERDS HEART YA judging process this year. There are a lot of wonderful books being brought to my attention because of this event. My pick to move forwarding in the judging process is Five Flavors of Dumb. Piper is a wonderful character and the premise is very unique. Piper has taken on the challenge of finding a paying gig for the band Dumb.
If she succeeds she will become their manager. Piper attacks the project with gusto despite one very unique situation. Piper is deaf and she become tied up emotionally with a band whose music she will never fully hear. A great read and a worthy candidate for the event . Give it a try!
