Plot Summary:
This is the ultimate guide in helping 'tweens, and teens, create, manage, advertise, and market their very own bands on a very small budget. Of all of the DIY guides, this one is hilarious and highly relevant to the ambitious teen who want nothing more then to be super cool. Moreover, this guide also helps 'tweens and teens choose the right members for their bands and, not to mention, lots of instruction on how to be the baddest lead singer ever!

Complete with illustrations, sarcasm, and a little nudge here and there, 'tweens are given guidelines that will help them build a band from the ground up starting with "The Basics" (forming a band, songs and recording, putting music out, merchandise, and stage etiquette). Then the final section, entitled "Touring," helps teens get on the road and by providing advice on packing, booking gigs, promoting the band by visiting local hangouts, money management,getting enough to eat, and relaxing when the tour is over. 'Tweens who read this guide will not only get great advice, but a stage manager that is compact, doesn't talk back, and won't cost them a third of their earnings each time they perform. I definitely recommend this guide to the ambitious 'tween who wants to have fun and get his or her music out in the world.
