Seventy-six trombones led the big parade, but Sam wasn't marching with them.
 

Sam watched as his brother Mike played his tuba and marched along behind the trombones.
 

Sam watched as his parents played the piano. He watched as his sister Michele played the violin. As Sam watched his family make music, it all looked so easy for them. But, he felt very left out.


When he tried the tuba, it wobbled and toppled right over him. When he touched the piano keys they went PLUNK, and the violin went SQUEAKKKK, SQUAAACK! There didn't seem to be a single instrument that was right for Sam.


I GIVE UP!
I HATE MUSIC!
IT'S TOO HARD!


Sam stomped to his room, threw himself on his bed and cried himself to sleep. What happens next is magic, as the Magic Music Man not only offers Sam his very own instrument, but teaches him where to find the music. As the magician and boy march, tap and swirl around Sam's room, he learns that the music isn't "out there" but inside-right inside of him-and it was finally coming out!
This heartening tale unfolds with rich color illustrations that will keep you humming, strumming and tapping for more.

Like most teens, Diamond's life is full of teenage angst—so much to look forward to, yet so much to fear. But her existence is different from her peers. After overcoming an enormous struggle that nearly took her life at six years old, Diamond finally believes that things are looking up. As she looks forward to her adolescensce filled with boyfriends, dances, high school, and friends, circumstances force her back into the nightmare that trapped her so long ago. To top it off, she is also bullied! Then, Nuyorican Knockout (the Big Booty Superhero) enters the scene. Can she save the day? How does Diamond get through it all?

 

"This is an important book for everyone to read, especially middle schoolers. It is fanciful and funny enough to stimulate their imaginations, compelling enough to make them want to keep reading, and real enough to touch their hearts."

- Hip Hop Superstar Big Sean
