Lisa Jenn Bigelow

Lisa Jenn Bigelow grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in a house full of books. Her mom read to her until I left for college. Her love of writing and books led me to major in creative writing and pursue a graduate degree in library science.

When she was seven, she decided to become an author. She attempted her first novel the following summer, about a brave princess joining forces with elves and fairies to overthrow the evil king and queen. It was seven pages long.

When She's not writing, she serves as a youth services librarian in the Chicago suburbs. In her free time, she's likely to be reading (of course!), playing music, crocheting or just hanging out with her dog.

Melly only joined the school band because her best friend, Olivia, begged her to. But to her surprise, quiet Melly loves playing the drums. It’s the only time she doesn’t feel like a mouse. Now she and Olivia are about to spend two weeks at Camp Rockaway, jamming under the stars in the Michigan woods. But this summer brings a lot of big changes for Melly: her parents split up, her best friend ditches her, and Melly finds herself falling for another girl at camp. To top it all off, Melly’s not sure she has what it takes to be a real rock n’ roll drummer. Will she be able to make music from all the noise in her heart?
