My Year of Epic Rock is a funny, relatable tale about friendship, first crushes and...anaphylactic shock?

It's the first day of seventh grade, and Nina can't wait for the year to be over. When her best friend ditches her to hang out with the popular new girl, Nina is banished to the undesirable peanut-free table. She thinks she's finally found her feet when she forms a band with the other allergic kids called The EpiPens. But then a whole new set of middle school minefields head her way-like how to win her BFF back and what would happen if she finally kisses her crush for the first time after he's just eaten a PB&J sandwich.

ANDREA PYROS is a writer and former teen magazine editor. She's also had jobs waiting tables (hard!), baking cookies (delicious!), steaming clothing (hot!) and interviewing celebs (terrifying!). But other than a brief period wanting to be a private detective like Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden, she's dreamt of being a writer all her life. A native of New York City, she now lives here in the Hudson Valley with her husband and their two children. This is her first novel.
