What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Fourth grader Lucy McGee’s ukulele is missing–and if she doesn’t find it soon, she’ll be kicked out of the Songwriting Club!

Lucy McGee is determined to track down her beloved instrument, but she can’t let anyone catch on–even best friend Phillip. When Lucy learns that YouTube songwriting stars Ben & Bee are playing a show on Saturday and they’re giving away a free ukulele, it seems like the perfect solution. If only it wasn’t the most in-demand, expensive concert ever.

Soon frenemy Scarlett announces that she has an extra ticket to the show, prompting everyone in the Songwriting Club to try to win her over. Lucy McGee will have to get extra creative to find out what happened to her uke and to charm the always-scheming Scarlett in this humorous but heartfelt chapter book.

The third book in Mary Amato’s charming Lucy McGee series features artwork on every page as well as song lyrics for aspiring musicians to try out on their own.
