Beige by Cecil Castellucci
Katy's dad, Rat, is a drummer in the legendary band Suck and lives in LA. Katy lives with her mom in Montreal, but is sent to stay for a few weeks with her dad that she doesn't know well. Those weeks turn into the whole summer, with a move at the end of it. Everyone in LA is into music and Katy is not; or so it seems! She's so boring her nickname is BEIGE. Katy works hard at being "the good girl" and bottles up a lot of her emotions, but towards the end of her summer she is expressing herself more freely with her father, her friends, and herself. I give this book a YAY! I want to read more about Beige and her new life in Madrid.
