Waiting on Wednesday: Week 70

My pick this week is:

Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John

THE CHALLENGE: Piper has one month to get a paying gig for Dumb—the hottest new rock band in school.

THE DEAL: If she does it, she'll become manager of the band and get her share of the profits, which she desperately needs since her parents raided her college fund.

THE CATCH: Managing one egomaniacal pretty boy, one talentless piece of eye candy, one crush, one silent rocker, and one angry girl who is ready to beat her up. And doing it all when she's deaf. With growing self-confidence, an unexpected romance, and a new understanding of her family's decision to buy a cochlear implant for her deaf baby sister, Piper just may discover her own inner rock star. (Summary from Author's website)

Doesn’t this sound amazing? I think so! I love how the Piper, the main character, is deaf because you really don’t see that often in YA. Plus, I love the title! It defiantly grabs my attention right away and the cover manages to do the same.

Five Flavors of Dumb comes out November 11, 2010.
