(The first book in the Scarlett & Crimson series)
A novel by Allyson Black and David Cody Weiss
Scarlett and Crimson are expecting this week to be just like every other week at V. Price Memorial Middle School. But, to their surprise and delight, this Monday they learn that the new kid in town - Pepper White - just snubbed the Leetz (the clique of popular, know-it-all girls that rules the school) at lunch! They also discover that Pepper has some seriously DARQ potential. As if that wasn't treat enough, the girls find out that the community recreation center is sponsoring a Battle of the Bands contest, and the top three bands from the whole district will compete live on Halloween night - the perfect opportunity to showcase their new, yet-to-be-named band! Tween girls will immediately take to Scarlett and Crimson in this first series installment as the girls launch their website, DarqSpace, partner up with Pepper to record an awesome demo, and show the Leetz that popularity doesn't always win over the crowd.
