Rock war

Muchamore, Robert, author

Meet Jay, Summer and Dylan. Jay plays guitar, writes songs and dreams of being a rock star, but his ambitions are stifled by seven siblings and a terrible drummer. Summer works hard at school, looks after her nan and has a one-in-a-million singing voice - but can her talent triumph over her nerves? Dylan is happiest lying on his bunk smoking, but his school rugby coach has other ideas, and Dylan reluctantly joins a band to avoid crunching tackles and icy mud. They're about to enter the biggest battle of their lives - and there's everything to play for
