Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John - Review

Another of Penelope's fabulous reviews. This looks amazing - don't you think?

Piper has just been hired as the manager of DUMB, one of Seattle's up and coming bands. There are just a few minor problems - no one outside of their high school knows who DUMB is, and Piper is deaf. She has one month to get them a paying gig and some cash for her dwindling college fund. Her friend, Ed, and the school's most popular girl join the band...and DUMB still swirls on a downward spiral.

This is one of the most heartfelt and hilarious books I've ever read. These
aren't characters as much as they are friends. You pick them up in the
middle of the night and sit until the silence moves you. They make you feel like you're about to see "THE" show, the one great show that will change everything. And then you don't even need to see it because it's all noise - fuzzy, dreamy, messy noise!
