What would you do if you found out a secret about your Middle School music teacher? Follow Bethesda, the perfect student, and Tenny, the kid that never pays attention, as they make a secret promise that will change the lives of their friends and their music teacher forever. This book is fun to read and has some very real moments as the students take risks as they are learning to grow up. Each character has a quirk that makes them charming, and the plot is well paced. This book was a delight to read.
