Imagine sharing your house with the hot British boy band, Abbey Road!!! This is NOT a dream come true for twelve-year-old Lark. She is homesick for the quiet life in Tennessee. When her parents divorced, she and her mom moved to Los Angles so Mom could start her own record label. Now the British invasion changes everything. All is a whirlwind of meetings, photo ops and rehearsals. The three boys may be great musicians, but they act their age being goofy, raucous and eating everything in sight. Mom, totally absorbed by the boys, ignores her needs. Lark, truly talented as a musician and singer song writer, is extremely shy. Fortunately, Lark has her best friend Mimi and the support of Teddy Reese who is helping her overcome her stage fright. Things turn ugly when Lark discovers that one of the Brits has stolen her song! Will Lark take a stand for her own work? Will Larkís mother finally understand her? (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Award 2017-2018)
