A heartwarming contemporary middle-grade novel that will resonate with an entire generation of young readers with dreams of music in a rough economy.While other kids dream about cars, sports, and fashion, all eleven-year-old Samantha Morris dreams about is playing the drums. But it's hard to make her dreams come true when her parents are against it, she bangs on dictionaries because she can't afford a real kit, and her middle school is cutting its music program.Sam's only hope to accomplish her dream is to find a private music teacher and pay for lessons herself -- even if it means borrowing the family lawn mower without permission to make the money. But when one of her friends tells her she's the worst percussionist in the band, she starts to wonder if she's got what it takes. If Sam wants to become a real drummer, she must also overcome her own doubts if she wants to succeed.
