Such a sweet book!

Ten year-old Zoe, is a girl who dreams of owning a piano. She also
dreams of being a child prodigy, and playing a grand piano, dressed in
a beautiful gown, at Carnegie Hall. The only problem is, Zoe's life is
a little upside down. Her dad is afraid of crowds, and almost anyone
not in his family, her mom is a workaholic and is never home, her best
friend dumps her for a new best friend, and the school bully suddenly
starts hanging out at her house, baking cookies with her dad every day.
To top it all off, her father goes to buy her a piano, and instead,
brings home an electric organ, complete with lessons. What is she
supposed to do with an organ?
This book was such a fun read. Great
for younger readers, but I really enjoyed it as well! I loved the way
the author portrayed Zoe, and made you get inside her head. She was
such a funny character! The book is a very quick read, but is light,
and has a good message. I haven't read anything else by this author,
and really don't know if she has anything else out there, but I will
definitely be looking!
