Read in June, 2011

Well-done, quick read about a multicultural California girl and the changes she faces as she turns 13. Her mom is getting serious with a boyfriend, her grandpa is dying, and her school orchestra is being shut down! Might be too slow for some middle-schoolers (the parts of grandpa narrating the story of his life are great but maybe not for kids who love "ACTION") but hopefully the surfing and music stuff will keep them going through this one.
