Description

Jay, Kelvin y Cia son los Lunar Ticks, una banda de rock muy esforzada, y están convencidos de que van camino al estrellato. El grupo espera ganar muy pronto una competencia de bandas de rock que ofrece como premio un día entero en un estudio de grabación. Van a competir contra Indigo Daze, una banda de otra escuela, y resulta que Jay se está enamorando de la líder del otro grupo, Rowan. Cuando alguien destroza la guitarra de Rowan antes de la competencia, los Lunar Ticks son los principales sospechosos.

Excerpt

Cuando agarro mi guitarra y paso mis dedos por las cuerdas y el primer arpegio sale con toda su fuerza por el amplificador, todo desaparece y lo único que importa es la música.

Editorial Reviews

"An entertaining, quick novelette for the young adult in which the reader is drawn in immediately with good descriptions and a good plot...It is perfectly written in Spanish, and will attract both male and female readers. In typical Orca Soundings style, it can be read in a sitting or two, and it will make even the reluctant reader content."

— Tri State Young Adult Book Review Committee

"The book is written at a level accessible to most middle school students and is an excellent resource for ELL and struggling readers...The author weaves romance, jealousy, and death throughout the story. I appreciate the fact that there is a girl playing in one of the bands. Teen musicians will enjoy the book."

— Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media
