Rock God: The Legend of BJ Levine by Barnabas Miller
This book follows BJ Levine, ordinary kid. Well, that is, until he finds a book on how to become a Megalord of Rock! He and his friends embark on an epic quest to fulfill the story of the book, going on a wild road trip to motorcycle bars, music competitions, and full of rock!
This book was a great read and a lot of fun! The book seemed to be for upper middle school, but I still enjoyed it a lot. I would recommend it to a friend, citing the generally light-hearted adventure and humor. I found the wacky adventures and original plot compelling. I found the book readable for 12 and up. There was no thematic content or anything objectionable. The only down side was that the book referenced a lot of classic rock artists, so some readers might be confused or lose a few jokes.
Quality: 4, better than most.
Popularity: 4, broad general teen appeal
