Ace and his best friend Denny notice that girls like musicians, no matter how dorky the dudes might be. So they start a band, and Ace discovers that he loves playing music more than anything he’s done in his life. Fueled by Denny’s tweets and a sound guaranteed to make cats barf, the band takes flight until a contest draws them into conflict. Their drummer, Pig, cares more about hygiene than music, and Denny’s drive to impress the girls leads them all astray.

Ace and Denny start a band after noticing that girls go for musicians. Despite the fact that they don't play well, Denny tweets news about the band and even arranges for a video shoot. To drum up interest in the band, the boys enter a local contest with a requirement of playing two original songs. Ace thinks his compositions are pretty good and is startled when Denny shows up with a really great song, one which Ace knows was written by his mom's former boyfriend. Will the band take credit for the song, or will Ace do the right thing and announce the true composer? Another winner from the Orca Currents series of high interest-lo level books for teens.
