A funny, relatable tale about friendship, first crushes and...anaphylactic shock? When Nina''s BFF ditches her on the first day of 7th grade, Nina is banished to the peanut-free table where she forms a band with the other allergic kids called The EpiPens. A rollicking debut from journalist Andrea Pyros, whose spot-on tween voice rings with authenticity.

If Life Was Like a Song

Nina Simmons'' song would be "You Can''tAlways Eat What You Want." (Peanut allergies, ugh). But that''s okay, because as her best friend Brianna always said, "We''re All in This Together."

Until the first day of the seventh grade, when Brianna dumps her to be BFFs with the popular new girl. Left all alone, Nina is forced to socialize with "her own kind"-banished to the peanut-free table with the other allergy outcasts. As a joke, she tells her new pals they should form a rock band calledEpiPens. (Get it?) Apparently, allergy sufferers don''t understand sarcasm, because the next thing Nina knows she''s the lead drummer.

Now Nina has to decide: adopt a picture-perfect pop personality to fit in with Bri and her new BFF or embrace her inner rocker and the spotlight. Well...

Call Me a Rock Star, Maybe.
