What does it take to become a Guitar God?
For Zoe Rashida, the first step is passing Biology. Nobody ever said the Rockstar life was easy. With college applications, short attention-spans, a crippling obsession with her guitar, and (mandatory?) extra-curricular study hall threatening to pull the plug, Zoe needs to crank it to 11 in order to make it to the next gig... even if she’s only booked in her bedroom. With the help of a supernatural Deathmetal spirit-guide, stubborn teachers who won’t budge, and a family with immortal resolve, she just might make it.
This one goes out to anyone who’s ever felt like an idiot in High School.
Originally published weekly online, this volume collects Act I of Basement Dwellers.
